After a week and a half of testimony, both the prosecution and the defense rested Friday afternoon in the case of Jeffrey McKelvey, charged with capital murder in the slayings of Denie and Pam Tucker on rural Sand Mountain.

The 2 sides were to present closing arguments to the jury Monday, with the judge to charge the jury and then deliberations to begin.

Counting 3 days of jury selection on the front end, Monday marked the third week of the trial.

A story about the last day of testimony is elsewhere in this paper.
