ITHACA, N.Y. -- Day one of jury deliberations is now in the books in the Blazej Kot murder trial. The Cornell grad student is accused of murdering his wife, Caroline Coffey, last summer.
Monday morning, attorneys made their closing arguments before the case was handed over to the jury. Testimony has lasted for three weeks, as the defense tried to prove that Kot was delusional in a state of psychosis when he killed his wife.
The prosecution, on the other hand, says it was premeditated and calls it cold-blooded murder.
Kot is facing charges of murder, arson and tampering with evidence.
Jurors will resume their deliberations Tuesday morning.
