SPOKANE — It's been 35 years since a prostitute was killed in the Spokane area.
Today, a jury is deliberating whether or not to convict former Pasco policeman Richard Aguirre in the beating and stabbing death of Ruby Doss.
Aguiree denies being involved in the murder, although prosecuting attorneys said they have proof the two were sexually involved prior to the homicide.
Prosecuting attorneys said DNA evidence proves the couple were intimate just prior to the slaying.
Defense attorneys have argued Aguirre was in Korea at the time of the slaying, pointing to military documents showing his deployment.
But prosecuting attorneys argued that he was actually at Fairchild Air Force Base seeing a dentist around the time of the homicide.
