Closing arguments were heard Tuesday in the murder trial of 34-year-old Kenneth Andersen of rural Waubun.

The jury began its deliberations shortly after 5:30 p.m., but no verdict was reached Tuesday and the jury will resume deliberations Wednesday morning.


On Monday, both the prosecution and defense had rested their cases. Before the attorneys began to make their final remarks on Tuesday, however, a series of rebuttal witnesses were called.
