PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Closing arguments are scheduled Tuesday in the murder trial of a man charged in the Valentine’s Day shooting deaths of his ex-girlfriend and another young woman in northeastern Philadelphia more than four years ago.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1Mu9k7U ) reports that testimony in the trial of 32-year-old Shaun Warrick ended suddenly Monday after prosecutors rested their case and defense attorney Jack McMahon said he would present no evidence.

Police say 21-year-old Marcedes Ivery and 19-year-old Tiffany Barnhill were found shot to death in a rented house in February 2011. McMahon has argued that no witnesses or physical evidence link his client to the slaying and there is evidence that another man was present at the time.

Prosecutors say they will seek capital punishment if Warrick is convicted of first-degree murder.
