Prosecution rests case in S. Indiana murder trial

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — Prosecutors have rest their case in a southern Indiana man's murder trial in the slaying of his late mother's best friend.

After Floyd County prosecutors rested their case Thursday against William Clyde Gibson, defense attorney Patrick Biggs told the judge overseeing the case that he expects to be done calling witnesses by noon Friday.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports (http://cjky.it/HeD6Qq ) Judge Susan Orth told attorneys to be prepared to deliver their closing arguments to the jury shortly afterward.

Prosecutors say Gibson lured 75-year-old Christine Whitis to his home in April 2012 and sexually assaulted, strangled and mutilated her. Gibson faces the death penalty if convicted in her killing.

He's also accused of killing two other women over a decade. Gibson will be tried separately in those two killings.
