FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Jurors in Fond du Lac are expected to start deliberating Friday afternoon in the trial of Jason Anderson, who’s charged with killing his wife 13 months ago.
Attorneys were making closing arguments late Friday morning, after a week-and-a-half of testimony.
The 36-year-old Anderson is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of his 33-year-old wife Nicole.
Prosecutors said Anderson shot her on purpose as she was sleeping. But the defense claimed it was an accident, and the judge gave jurors the option of convicting Anderson of a reckless homicide charge if they could not determine that he intended to kill his wife.
Prosecutors said it was no accident because Anderson did not call for help after the shooting – and police had to track him down to Birmingham Alabama, where he was arrested at a motel two days after the killing.
