Closing arguments begin today in the trial of Stephen Jessie Lester.
Lester is charged with the murder of 19-year-old Andre Sawyer of Jackson County last August.
He was arrested in Troy.
Prosecutors say a driver found Sawyer's body face down in a ditch off Highway Two in Campbellton.
The state rested its case Wednesday afternoon and the defense motioned for acquittal without calling a witness, based on “no physical evidence” placing the defendant at the scene.
