LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – On the seventh day of testimony in Mason Sisk’s murder trial, the state continued to call witnesses through lunch, but when it came time for the defense to present its case, they didn’t call a single person to the stand.

The judge will now read jury instructions, then court will be adjourned for the day. Closing arguments are set to begin Thursday morning.

Sisk is charged with killing five family members in September 2019, he was 14 at the time.

His first trial in the fall of 2022 was declared a mistrial after prosecutors informed the court that FBI computer experts had finally unlocked Sisk’s adoptive mother’s phone.

Now 18, Sisk won’t face the death penalty if convicted but faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.

On day six of testimony, jurors were shown a video of the interrogation in which Mason confessed to the crime.

The confession in the video came after an already long line of questioning by former Sheriff Mike Blakely. In the video, Sisk denied killing his family multiple times, while Blakely accused him of lying.

Sisk had signed a Miranda waiver agreeing to answer questions and waiving the right to have an attorney or other adult present.

Shortly after the video finished, court was adjourned for the day.
