The KFC capital murder trial resumes Monday in Bryan.

The prosecution rested on Thursday in the trial of a man accused of abducting and killing five people at a Kilgore Kentucky Fried Chicken in 1983.

Darnell Hartsfield of Tyler faces life in prison if convicted of five counts of capital murder.

Prosecutors chose to not seek the death penalty and have built a circumstantial case against Hartsfield to try to tie him to the restaurant.

It is anticipated that closing arguments will occur by the end of the week.
