BOLIVIA — Closing arguments are expected to begin at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 5, in the trial of a former Southport police sergeant charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a schizophrenic Boiling Spring Lakes teen more than two years ago.

Bryon Vassey, 46, shot and killed 18-year-old Keith Vidal on Jan. 5, 2014. He was the last of three officers to arrive on scene that day.
