In his closing arguments, the attorney for Scott Roeder, the man who shot and killed abortion provider George Tiller May 31, 2009, in a Wichita church, compared his client to Rosa Parks, saying he was standing by his convictions when he broke the law and took Tiller's life.
Roeder testified that he killed Tiller to keep him from killing more unborn babies.
His attorney said there was no doubt Roeder killed George Tiller, there is a difference between killing someone and murdering someone, and asked the jury to acquit Roeder.
In her closing argument, prosecuting attorney Nora Foulston noted that Tiller's wife Jeanie was singing in the choir at that church at the same time Roeder killed her husband.
Tiller's family is in the courtroom.
