OKLAHOMA CITY - The fate of an Oklahoma City man accused of murder after a deadly case of road rage is in the hands of a jury.
On Wednesday, the jury heard final arguments and began deliberating.
Testimony concluded Tuesday in the trial of 59-year-old David Bloebaum.
Bloebaum allegedly killed Jasen Yousif in the parking lot of Super Target, near Penn and Memorial Rd., back in 2012.
After the state rested its case, the defense also rested without calling a single witness.
The last witness called by prosecutors told the jury what happened in the parking lot should not qualify as self-defense.
The blood expert testified there was no blood found inside the suspect's truck.
Bloebaum has always said Yousif reached into his truck in an attempt to stab him with a knife and Bloebaum opened fire in self-defense.
The prosecution's final witness seems to counter that claim.
If convicted, Bloebaum faces life in prison.
