DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - The fate of a Dickinson man charged with murder in a shooting last summer is in the hands of jurors.

Attorneys on Tuesday evening finished their closing arguments in the case of 22-year-old Micheal Reisenauer (RY'-zuhn-ow-uhr). He is accused of killing 19-year-old Kyle Goodbird during a gathering at a Dickinson apartment last July.

Reisenauer says he was defending himself when he shot Goodbird and that he did not intend to kill him. Prosecutor Jim Hope says Reisenauer had other options than pulling the trigger and that the shooting was an execution.
