ST. THOMAS — Defense attorneys finished presenting evidence Tuesday in the retrial of three former executives charged with conspiring to embezzle $5.8 million from Schneider Hospital, and lawyers for both sides will give their closing arguments today in V.I. Superior Court.

The retrial of the three men, Rodney Miller Sr., Amos Carty Jr., and Peter Najawicz, is the culmination of a case that has been pending for more than a decade. Their first trial in 2011 ended in a mistrial when the jury deadlocked and could not reach a unanimous verdict on any of the dozens of criminal charges, including conspiracy, embezzlement, grand larceny, fraud and violations of the territory’s anti-racketeering statute, the Criminally Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or CICO.
