TACOMA, Wash. -  The prosecution has rested its case in the Tacoma trial of four people accused of helping Lakewood cop-killer Maurice Clemmons.

The defense case is expected to open on Monday.

The four friends and relatives of Clemmons are accused of giving him medical care, clean clothes, transportation and other help after he gunned down four officers in November of last year in a Parkland coffee shop. Clemmons was killed two days later in a confrontation with a Seattle officer.

The trial that began Nov. 9 could go to the jury by the end of the month.

Two people have already been convicted of criminal assistance and the man accused of being the getaway driver is scheduled for trial in June on four counts of aggravated murder.
