Tai Chan jury to visit the hotel where murder took place

Hotel Encanto

Tuesday is day two of retrial for Tai Chan, who is accused of shooting fellow deputy, Jeremy Martin, in October 2014.

The jury will visit Hotel Encanto in Las Cruces where the shooting took place.

According to the Las Cruces Sun News, jurors will get a better look at room 711, the room Chan and Martin shared.

Jurors will also get to see the 7th floor hallway and stairwell with rooftop access.

The tour of the hotel is expected to last about 30 minutes.

District Attorney Mark D'Antonio filed a motion stating that the prosecution or defense can provide commentary during the tour.

However, there will be one prosecutor, one defense attorney and Chan on the hotel tour.

The trial continues Tuesday morning.
