MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Testimony has wrapped up in the trial of a Williston man accused of killing a hobby rancher a year and a half ago.

Thirty-three-year-old Ryan Stensaker is on trial in Minot on murder conspiracy and other charges in the spring 2013 death of 58-year-old Jack Sjol (shohl). Sjol’s body was found in a garbage dump, with bullet wounds to his head, face and upper left arm.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1BZo8r7 ) that the prosecution rested its case Wednesday, after a week of testimony, and the defense did not call any witnesses. The case was to go to the jury after closing arguments by attorneys on both sides.

Stensaker could face life in prison without parole if convicted.
