IRON COUNTY – The People vs. Kelly Cochran began this morning with closing statements. Starting with the prosecution.
Iron County Prosecutor Melissa Powell spoke of a blood bond Cochran shared with her now deceased husband Jason.
“When normal people make a wedding vow they commit to loving each other. when Jason Cochran and Kelly Cochran made a wedding vow they committed to killing for each other Right from their wedding night they had a bond that regular people wouldn’t understand.” She continued, “They are both monsters. Her words . . . not mine. The defendants in this matter were bonded in blood. Chris Regan was bathed in it. And at this time I’m asking you to wash away the blood and find the defendant guilty of all counts.”
Defense Attorney Mike Scholke then argued that there was not a sufficient amount of scientific proof.
“I also believe it was Detective Ogden who said that you have to look for the nuggets of truth in what Kelly says. That isn’t what is supposed to happen here. The puzzle should not be dumped in front of you and they say, ‘Okay, folks, figure it out.’ That’s not the people’s burden. the people’s burden is to tell you what happened. They cannot do so,” he said.
