AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Closing arguments have concluded in the trial of a Summit County man accused in the shooting death of Akron police officer Justin Winebrenner.
The jury in the Kenan Ivery murder trial now has the case and will be sequestered. They deliberated until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday before calling it a night.
They will continue deliberating at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.
Ivery faces numerous charges including aggravated murder in connection with the November 2014 shooting death of Winebrenner.
Ivery, who had been thrown out of Papa Don's Pub on East Market Street quickly returned with a gun. Winebrenner, who was off duty, was shot when he tried to diffuse an escalating situation.
Winebrenner served seven-and-a-half years on the force and is the son of a retired police officer.
Ivery could get the death penalty if convicted.
