ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (AP) -- Prosecutors say they plan to present their closing arguments Thursday in the murder trial of a man accused in the 2008 beating deaths of four people in northwest Illinois.
According to The Rock Island Argus, prosecutor Steve Nate said in court Tuesday that he also plans a full day of witnesses on Wednesday in the trial of 34-year-old Nathan Sheley. Those witnesses are expected to include Sheley's ex-wife, Holly Sheley.
Defense attorney Jeremy Karlin has said he doesn't expect to call any witnesses.
Sheley has pleaded not guilty to killing 29-year-old Brock Branson; 20-year-old Kilynna Blake; her son, 2-year-old Dayan and 25-year-old Kenneth Ulve.
Sheley has been convicted of killing two Illinois men that same week and is charged in two deaths in Missouri.
