Closing arguments coming in Roeder trial


A lot happened yesterday. Roeder took the stand, Phill Kline didn't get to testify before the jury and the judge told everyone that, no, the jury won't have the option of convicting Roeder of voluntary manslaughter. That was sort of the defense's main hope -- their man has admitted in court to killing the victim in a premeditated fashion. The closing arguments are expected sometime today, with the jurors starting their deliberations afterwards.

Judy Thomas has a very good wrap-up of yesterday's testimony, viewable here.
