Through the week long trial in October the prosecution aimed to show they had all the evidence to show Deleston killed Lion. The key piece of evidence was the gun used in the murder that was recovered through a police tip and an undercover setup.

 Bryan Rivers was said to be the trigger man by Ryan Deleston.
