GRETNA, La. (AP) Jurors will soon be deciding the fate of the man who killed former NFL running back Joe McKnight.
Closing arguments were underway Friday morning in the second-degree murder trial of Ronald Gasser.
Gasser shot McKnight after what prosecutors said was a road rage incident that included aggressive driving along a five mile route.
Prosecutors told jurors Friday the evidence shows Gasser angrily pursued McKnight and shot him from inside his own car.
A defense lawyer said McKnight was the aggressor throughout and Gasser fired in self-defense, fearing McKnight was about to enter his car through a passenger window.
