UMKC School of Law

You have listened with a great deal of patience and kindness and consideration ot the State and the defense. I am not going to trespass unduly upon Your Honor's time, and I am going to close for the State.
I believe that the facts and circumstances proved in this case demonstrate that a crime has been committed by these two defendants, and that no other punishment except the extreme penalty of the law will fit it; and I leave the case with you on behalf of the State of Illinois, and I ask Your Honor in the language of Holy Writ to "Execute justice and righteousness in the land."
