Closing arguments in Wright trial could come as early as this morning

After only one day of defense lawyers calling witnesses, the closing
arguments in the Daphne Wright trial could start as soon as 10 a.m.

Wright is accused of first-degree murder and the kidnapping of Darlene
VanderGiesen in February of 2006.

Prosecutors maintain that after kidnapping and murdering VanderGiesen, Wright sawed her body at the knees and waist, and tried to burn the parts before disposing of them in a Dumpster and a Minnesota highway ditch.

The state rested its case Tuesday morning before the jury returned. The defense then called seven witnesses; the 43-year-old defendant was not among them.
