Crowd Gathers Inside, Outside of Courthouse

People gathered outside the Porter County Courthouse this morning, holding signs like “Justice for Amanda” as jurors today are expected to begin deliberations in the Dustin McCowan murder trial. 20-year-old McCowan is accused of fatally shooting one-time girlfriend 19-year-old Amanda Bach of Portage in September of 2011. The trial started about three-and-a-half weeks ago.  Published reports say both the defense and prosecution will be allowed two-hours each for closing arguments, before the jury is sent off to come back with a verdict.
