(UPDATE) 4:20 p.m.- Jeffery Menzies has been found guilty of the first-degree murder of David Yang in September 2011. The jury was in deliberation for approximately two hours. He will likely face a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. His sentencing date has been scheduled for October 11.

The Jeffery Menzies murder trial is wrapping up after closing arguments from both the prosecution and defense today.

During today's proceedings, prosecutor Mark Murphy focused on recorded phone calls between Menzies and his friend Dan Slack in which Menzies reportedly admits to killing someone. But defense attorney Jodea Foster said that there are too many holes in the prosecution's case, including Slack's testimony, which he says has changed over time.

The jury will now deliberate until a verdict is reached. Menzies faces life in prison if convicted. Tune into Action News Now at 5pm for full coverage.
