Evidence is now complete in the sniper-shooting trial of Bruce J. Nozolino - leaving only closing arguments before the case goes to the jury.

Defense attorneys wrapped up their case Friday morning, leading to a brief rebuttal case by the prosecution, which concluded by 10:30 a.m.

Attorneys on both sides focused on the defense's alternate suspects in the case.

Closing arguments are expected at 1 p.m. Monday.

Opening statements were Jan. 14. Over the course of seven weeks, the jury heard from approximately 145 witnesses, and 800-900 pieces of evidence were entered.

Nozolino, 52, is charged with 31 counts, including murder and multiple counts of attempted murder, in four shootings authorities tie to his bitter divorce.
