GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Presenting a detailed timeline of murder defendant Pedro Bravo's actions and words before and after University of Florida student Christian Aguilar was slain, prosecutors delivered closing arguments in the case.
Prosecutor Bill Ezzell on Friday walked jurors through a number of purchases Bravo made in the days before Aguilar died on Sept. 20, 2012: duct tape, a shovel, sleeping medications and a hunting knife.
Calling the purchases a "murderer's starting pack," Ezzell highlighted for jurors the many lies Bravo told police about his interactions with Aguilar.
Bravo first told police Aguilar had left his car angry, but unharmed. Later he said he hit Aguilar multiple times.
Prosecutors say Bravo strangled Aguilar because he was dating Bravo's ex-girlfriend.
Bravo has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges.
