WAUKEGAN, ILL. (AP) - The case of a Chicago woman accused of killing the pregnant girlfriend of former Chicago Bears player Shaun Gayle is in the hands of a jury.

Closing arguments took place Tuesday in the case against 43-year-old Marni Yang. She’s accused of shooting Rhoni Reuter of Deerfield in October 2007, killing her and her unborn child.

Gayle was a member of the Bears 1985 Super Bowl team.

Yang has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and intentional homicide of an unborn child. She didn’t testify during the trial.

Gayle testified he met Yang in 2005 and the two had a business relationship that turned sexual.

Prosecutors painted Yang as jealous of Reuter’s relationship with Gayle.

Defense attorneys say investigators never considered other suspects.
