The prosecution has rested its case in the trial of a state trooper who killed two teen sisters in a 2006 crash. Trooper Robert Higbee is charged with death by auto. He ran a stop sign in Upper Township and crashed into a van carrying Jacqueline and Christina Becker.

The defense was to begin presenting its case Wednesday afternoon.

The jury must decide whether Higbee, who was chasing a speeder, acted recklessly or whether the crash was a tragic but unavoidable accident.
