Lindsay Torrey has been in Riley County District Court since Tuesday, facing multiple charges stemming from a domestic dispute incident in October 2021 where he is accused of shooting multiple shots at a vehicle, driven by a now 35-year-old female, while driving along K-18.
Closing arguments wrapped up Friday morning, with the jury now in deliberations.
Assistant County Attorney Trinity Muth concluded the state’s case by claiming the defendant lacks credibility, a witness statement corroborates the victim’s story, the defendant has ties to where the gun allegedly used was purchased, gunshot residue was found on Lindsay and in his vehicle, and bullet fragments were located inside the victim’s car.
The defense states that the victim has provided inconsistent statements, there is insufficient evidence tying Lindsay to the weapon, the witness was too far away to clearly see, and the gunshot residue is likely a result of transfer.
Lindsay faces single counts of attempted first degree murder, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, criminal discharge of a firearm and aggravated intimidation of a witness.
Additionally, Lindsay is charged with robbery, aggravated domestic battery and aggravated assault stemming from a June 2021 incident involving the same victim.
