  • Text size: + -

Closing arguments were held Thursday in DeKalb County, Georgia, in the trial of a man accused of shooting two police officers to death. One of those officers was a Rochester native.

Officers Ricky Bryant and Eric Baker were shot and killed while working off-duty security jobs back in 2008.

William Woodard could face the death penalty if convicted. He claims he shot the off-duty cops in self defense.

The 26-year-old Bryant grew up in Rochester before moving to Georgia with his wife and three children. Following his death, Bryant was returned to Rochester for burial. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
