Bowers Murder Trial Goes To The Jury The trial of Marion Bowers, 63, Monticello, who is charged with murder in the Oct. 31, 1987 shooting death of his son-in-law, James (Terry) Harris, 36, Monticello, was expected to go to the jury this morning. Defense Attorney Jay Hirschauer and White County Prosecutor Robert Mrzlack presented final arguments this morning. The final arguments were followed by instructions to the jury by Circuit Judge Robert Roth. Bowers contends the shooting was in self defense. Harris died of wounds suffered when he was shot with a .410 gauge shotgun. Bowers does not deny he fired the gun, but has contended the shooting resulted after he was threatened by his son-in-law. Mrzlack said the state contends Bowers waited with a loaded gun for Harris and then shot him when he entered the home. Hirschauer said Harris was shot after Harris broke down the front door to the home and scuffled with Bowers. The five-woman, seven-man jury has heard testimony since last Tuesday.
