DUNCAN, Okla. - Testimony wrapped up Thursday in Chancey Luna's murder trial.

He is accused of gunning down 22-year-old Christopher Lane in August of 2013.

As Lane's family sat in the courtroom listening to emotional testimony, Luna's mother, Jennifer Luna, sat outside angry. She was not allowed inside the courtroom until she took the stand.

Jennifer was in tears when she finished testifying Thursday.

She was on the witness stand for only a few minutes.

"I couldn't talk good about him or bad about him because that's not what they wanted to hear," Jennifer said.

She says she did not even get the chance to fight for her son. She wanted to show the jury photos of young Luna and tell him about the boy she knows.

"Chancey has always been a loving and kind of person that always everyday always tells you he loves you and everything else. This is not him. This is something he wouldn't do on purpose. If he did do it. That's just not him," Jennifer cried.

Earlier in the day jurors heard more evidence.

Lane's family sobbed as the doctor who performed his autopsy took the stand.

Graphic photos were shown, showing were the bullet hit lane.

The doctor said it entered through the left side of his back hitting several vital organs including his lungs.

She said it would have been a miracle for him to survive.

Heavy hearts now as both families wait for the verdict.

Closing arguments are set to begin Friday at 9:30 a.m.
