Australia jury to consider verdict in marathon Robert Xie quintuple homicide case
The jury in the trial of Robert Xie has retired to consider its verdict. Xie is accused of murdering five Lin family members. After more than nine months of trial, the judge instructed the jury to begin their deliberations.
The Crown case centers on a small blood smear found on Xie’s garage floor. Dr. Mark Perlin of Cybergenetics testified in June about this DNA mixture. TrueAllele separated the data into five genotypes, connecting the mixture evidence to the DNA of the related victims.
