Closing Arguments in Dumond Trial Tomorrow

November 11, 2003  -- Posted at 7:53 AM

LIBERTY, MO  --Closing arguments in the trial of a paroled Arkansas rapist accused of killing a Missouri woman are scheduled for tomorrow.

Wayne Dumond's defense rested yesterday, but the court is closed today for Veteran's Day. The 54-year-old DuMond is accused in the September 20th, 2000, death of Carol Sue Shields, age 39, who was killed at a friend's apartment in Kansas City.

DuMond, who had moved to Missouri after being paroled in Arkansas, was arrested in June 2001, hours after police got a report from Arkansas authorities that material found under Shields' fingernails had been matched to DuMond's D-N-A in an F-B-I database.

 Defense lawyer Anthony Cardarella has maintained that someone other than DeMond killed Shields and has tried to rebut prosecution testimony.

DuMond was paroled in Arkansas after serving 13 years for the 1984 rape of a teenager in Forrest City.

He was awaiting trial in that case when he said someone castrated him in 1985 in his Arkansas home.
