ACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Defense attorneys only plan to call one or two more witnesses in the trial of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music.
Defense attorneys for 47-year-old Michael Dunn could rest as early as Tuesday.
If that happens, prosecutors have the chance to call rebuttal witnesses before jurors are given their instructions.
Dunn is pleading not guilty to first-degree murder. He says he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot 17-year-old Jordan Davis, of Marietta, Ga., outside the store in Jacksonville in November 2012.
Prosecutors rested their case on Monday after an associate medical examiner testified that the first bullet that hit Davis in the abdomen likely killed him.
Character witnesses for the defense testified that they never knew Dunn to be violent.
