Following a hearing in which Judge McLean denied the defense team's request for a retrial (as well as a change in the charge), Markus Kaarma was sentenced to 70 years with no option for parole until 20 years have been served.
Sentencing in the Markus Kaarma trial began with a hearing in which Judge Ed McLean heard arguments from the defense team that Kaarma's trial was inherently biased against him. Defense also argued that the charge against Markus Kaarma be lessened from Deliberate Homicide to Mitigated Homicide
Closing arguments began on the eighth day of the Markus Kaarma trial in Missoula. Prosecution focused on proving that Kaarma had intent to kill any potential burglars in his house based on his actions in the days leading up to the fatal shooting of Diren Dede. Defense emphasized that jurors must have absolutely no doubt in order to find Kaarma guilty.
Missoula Police have captured a suspect in a robbery that occurred on Saturday, December 13 at a Zip Trip convenience store in Missoula. The criminal escaped the scene with an undisclosed amount of money and some beer.
