SANTA FE (KRQE) - The second day of the Michael Astorga sentencing hearing began with a warning from the judge Monday.
The judge closed the court Monday morning and when everyone was allowed back in he told spectators not to interact with jurors in this case.
With that issue resolved, prosecutors put a BCSO deputy on the stand.
That deputy was working with James McGrane Junior that night in 2006 when McGrane was shot and killed by Michael Astorga , in Tijeras.
He told jurors about rushing to the scene, after McgGrane did not answer his radio.
"They had Deputy McGane's shirt off, and his protective vest off, and like they said I performed CPR on him at that time when I showed up," Deputy Anton Maltby said.
The deputy said he pulled a defibrillator out of his patrol car and tried to restart McGrane's heart several times, even after the machine indicated the lawman was dead.
"At that time I was just trying to do anything for my partner that was down," Maltby said.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys role-played while reading transcripts from several witnesses from Astorga's trial in 2010 witnesses the prosecution said are hard to get back here to testify again.
An OMI doctor finished testimony Monday, showing the jury graphic autopsy photos of McGrane's wounds.
Even though Astorga has been found guilty of murder, prosecutors have to make their case again that he killed McGrane, before this jury can decide life or death.
The sentencing hearing is expected to take about a month.
Family members of Deputy McGrane want the death penalty.
