The people rest in the Utica College terror threat trial. The prosecution's final witness, Northeast Cybersecurity and Forensics Center Director Anthony Martino, testified about searches and other data found on defendant Fahrudin Omerovic's cell phone and iPad.

"This is a log entry from the web history of the Apple iPad showing the user visiting a site related to the words Kentucky School Shooting," said Martino, of a search conducted January 18, 2017; more than a year before the threatening phone calls put the UC campus on lockdown for six hours, on March 5, 2018.

Then, a search conducted 11 days before the March 5 threats.

"That is New Hampshire handguns for sale Glock-30sf-g3 and both of those bookmarks were created on 1/18.2017," said Martino.

Martino spoke about the extraction of deleted data from Omerovic's devices.

"We've talked about the phone number 792 3046, which is Utica College. Each of the five calls made from this device were all deleted off?" asked the prosecution. "That is correct," answered Martino.

Friday afternoon, the prosecution rested and the defense called defendant Fahrudin Omerovic's parents to the witness stand.

"We have health issues, problems with health and he is taking care of us all the time," said Omerovic's mother, Hafiza Omerovic. She said her son is a highly intelligent scholarship recipient who speaks multiple languages, works 60-70 hours per week supporting the family and cooks and sorts her and her husband's medicine every day.

The judge told jurors that any remaining defense witnesses would take the stand Monday morning, then, the attorneys would make closing arguments and the jury will get the case Tuesday. Court is back in session 9:30 Monday morning.
