LEXINGTON, S.C. (WIS) - After more than a month of testimony, the second phase of the Timothy Jones Jr. trial is coming to a close.

On Thursday, attorneys will present closing arguments to the jury, as prosecutors push for the death penalty and defense attorneys seek mercy for Timothy Jones, Jr. Following closing arguments, deliberations are set to get underway afterwards.

On June 12, the jury heard testimony from more of Jones’ family, his step-mother and his step-brother, who pleaded with the court to show him mercy and not sentence him to death.
