Freddy Munoz Razo stands during a break in his trial on attempted first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping charges Wednesday.

Prosecutors rested their case Thursday, June 13, in the trial of a man charged with shooting a Pasco woman in the head and leaving her to die in 2016.

Freddy Munoz Razo, 44, is charged with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in the shooting of Amy McGee on June 1, 2016, near Wapato. McGee was found alive five days later in the 500 block of Flint Road with a gunshot wound to her head.

McGee told a Yakima County Superior Court jury Wednesday how Razo beat her on June 1, 2016, before he and Daniel Perez took her to a remote fishing pond and Perez fired a single shot at the back of her head. McGee was walking back from the Yakima police headquarters, where she tried to report an earlier kidnapping, when Razo and Perez forced her into an SUV.

The shooting left McGee with no peripheral vision and problems reading and working with numbers, McGee told jurors.

Perez, 39, who was also charged with attempted murder and kidnapping, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault in the case as part of a plea deal, and was sentenced to 17 years in prison last year.

Defense attorney Scott Bruns is expected to present his case Friday morning. Judge Michael McCarthy indicated earlier that jurors will begin deliberations later Friday.

The trial began Monday with jury selection and was initially scheduled to last two weeks.
