Closing arguments in trial over loud music death


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors and defense attorneys are making their closing arguments in the trial of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen following an argument over loud music.

Both sides are expecting to sum up their cases Wednesday in the first-degree murder trial of 47-year-old Michael Dunn. Jurors could begin deliberating Wednesday afternoon.

Dunn has pleaded not guilty, saying he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012.

The defense rested Tuesday after calling Dunn to testify.

Dunn told jurors he feared for his life after he told Davis and two friends in a parked car next to his to turn down their music. He said an argument escalated.

Prosecutors challenged parts of Dunn' story.
