OKLAHOMA CITY - The trial of an Oklahoma City man accused of murder following a case of road rage nears an end.

The 59-year-old suspect, David Bloebaum, is accused of shooting the victim outside the Super Target near Penn and Memorial.

The weeks worth of testimony has taken an emotional toll on the victim's mother.

Jasen Yousif died after being shot 5 times, including 3 times in the back.

Bloebaum shows no emotion listening to the state's case against him, but the victim's mother has to step out of court throughout the day to keep herself composed.

"It's just too much. I can't even think right now honestly," said the victim's mother Annie Yousif.

Seeing Bloebaum in the courthouse halls during a previous court hearing, Annie Yousif burst into anger.

"I hope you fry. I hope you fry in hell," yelled Yousif.

This week the grief over her son's death boiled over again, and Annie shouted at Bloebaum as he left court.

The trial judge threatened to hold her in contempt if she has another outburst.

"It's very hard seeing him walk into court and my son is six feet under, why should you be alive?" said Yousif.

For their side, Bloebaum's attorney's continue to claim self-defense.

Police testified they did find a knife on the scene, but eyewitnesses gave conflicting accounts whether Yousif had the weapon in his hand before the shooting.

"I hope he will rot in jail rest of his life," said Yousif. "I hope the jury will lock him up for the rest of his life."

Attorneys in the case could not talk about the trial because a gag order has been issued by the judge.

The trial will continue on Monday.

Bloebaum faces life in prison if he's convicted of the murder charge.
