The Latest: Cosby’s accuser, wife see defense’s argument

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Bill Cosby’s chief accuser and his wife sat feet apart as lawyers delivered closing arguments in his trial on charges he sexually assaulted her at his suburban Philadelphia home in January 2004.

Andrea Constand watched from the front row of the packed courtroom gallery on Monday as Cosby’s lawyers spent nearly two hours seizing on inconsistencies in her story in a final push for acquittal. Camille Cosby also sat in the front row, with a few other people and the aisle between them.

Cosby lawyer Brian McMonagle told jurors Constand’s story evolved and details changed over three interviews she gave to police after coming forward about a year after she says he assaulted her.

Prosecutors are poised to give their closing argument Monday afternoon. Camille Cosby isn’t in the courtroom for that.
