UPDATE: Closing arguments have concluded, and the case has gone to the jury.

Tampa, Florida -- The police dashcam video showing the deaths of Tampa Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab was played in federal court Tuesday morning.

Cortnee Brantley is on trial for her alleged role in their deaths.

Prosecutors say she was driving the car that Dontae Morris was a passenger in back in June of  2010. That's when Brantley was pulled over for a traffic stop that ultimately led to Morris allegedly shooting and killing the two officers.

The dashcam video has not been released to the public, but 10 News reporter Kathryn Bursch was inside the courtroom. She tells us the officers' family left the courtroom when the tapes were played for the jurors.

She says the entire courtroom was silent as the video was played.
