WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The prosecution has started giving its closing arguments in the murder trial of Raul Ponce-Rocha. He's the man accused of brutally murdering 18 year old Breanna Schneller in May of 2009.

District attorney Ken Heimerman said all the evidence points to Ponce-Rocha.

"His DNA was in Breanna's apartment, in the dumpster, and on her body," Heimerman told the jury.

He went on to say Ponce-Rocha has repeatedly lied about all the key facts in the case.

"It's not a coincidence, it's a cover-up. Just like the 'Sergio' story was a cover-up," Heimerman said.
