Saul Castillo took the stand as the last witness in his trial regarding a Father’s Day 2013 shooting after a soccer game. Castillo is charged with malice murder for allegedly shooting and killing Silverio Acosta, of Gainesville, after a June 16, 2013, soccer game at Tadmore Park. Castillo was questioned by defense attorney Larry Duttweiler and Chief Assistant District Attorney Wanda Vance before the end of evidence Wednesday afternoon. Vance questioned Castillo about his comment to officers about how he “thought (Acosta) had a weapon” and alleged conversations about what would be said or represented in court.
