LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The jury is deliberating in the trial of Armonta DeQuon Hadnot, the accused trigger man in last year's triple homicide at McMillan Park.

The 19-year-old Hadnot is one of two men accused of robbing and fatally shooting Jerminskian J. Arvie, David Jermaine Galmore and Fitzgerald Tremayne Guillory on March 20, 2013.

Hadnot is facing three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder. The second suspect has not been identified.

Christopher Singletary, with the Southwest Louisiana Crime Lab, took the stand Wednesday and said Hadnot's DNA was found on the murder weapon, a .40 caliber Glock.

A firearms expert and a corner also testified on Wednesday.

Arvie, Galmore and Guillory and three other men were playing dice at McMillian Park last year when they were approached by two armed men.

On Tuesday, the three who survived the shooting said though they cooperated with the suspects, the armed men still opened fire.

In July 2013, the Calcasieu District Attorney's Office decided not to seek the death penalty for Hadnot.

KPLC's Haley Rush will have more on later editions.
