Felix has pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and weapons charges in the shooting deaths of 27-year-old Officer Lesley Zerebny and 63-year-old Officer Jose "Gil" Vega.

Closing arguments begin at 9 Thursday morning May 16th in the murder trial of John Felix.
He’s on trial in Indio for killing 2 Palm Springs Police Officers on October 8th 2016 in Palm Springs.
Prosecutors have to prove Felix intended and planned to kill officers Jose Gil Vega and Lesley Zerebny as they responded to a domestic disturbance call at the Felix home.
The defense simply has to create some reasonable doubt in the mind of just one jury member, as to the intentions of Felix.
