The Jury Will Now Decide Kenneth Tyree's Fate

The jury has the case in the trial of Kenneth Tyree, the former Schenectady Building Inspector, who is charged in the March, 2015 fire on Jay Street that killed four people and injured dozens of others. 

In closing arguments, Defense Attorney Mark Gaylord says his client is being blamed unfairly, is being made a scapegoat and is being blamed for other people's negligence. 

Prosecutors point to what they say was the short duration of Tyree's inspection, his statement on the condition of the smoke alarms, and a misrepresentation on what he saw on the fire panel.
