( Reuters) – The New York City cop on trial for plotting to kidnap, cook and eat women shed tears on Tuesday as his attorneys rested their case after one day.
“Just knowing that we’ve finally come to the conclusion (of the trial) and that his fate is in the jury’s hands” made Officer Gilberto Valle emotional, attorney Robert Baum said after court ended.
“That’s a huge weight for someone to bear,” Baum said.
Closing arguments were scheduled for early on Thursday.

Several sources told
The Times and many other news organizations that a body was located in the rubble. But LAPD officials said that the cabin was still too hot to search and no body has been found.
