Guam - Initially scheduled for this afternoon closing arguments in the Chad DeSoto trial have been delayed until tomorrow.
According to a release from the Judiciary of Guam, Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola is in the process of finalizing verdict forms with both the Office of the Attorney General and the Public Defender's Office.
It was in February 2013 DeSoto drove his car down a Tumon sidewalk before crashing into the ABC Store, darting out of the car, and stabbing people at random resulting in the death of three Japanese tourists.
DeSoto is charged with three counts of aggravated murder and eleven counts of attempted aggravated murder as first degree felonies. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness.
If convicted he faces life behind bars without possibility of parole.
Closing arguments will be heard tomorrow at 1pm.
