TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Jurors are to begin deliberating in the trial of a Pierce County man charged with murder in the 2014 shooting death of his fiancee.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1jeaMRB ) that deliberations in William Grisso’s trial begin Thursday.

The case against Grisso began in June 2014 after he reported his fiancee, 45-year-old Nancy Gardner, missing. Detectives later found the woman’s body in a secluded area near Belfair with gunshot wounds.

Prosecutors had argued that Grisso killed his fiancee to be with another woman and had reported her missing to portray himself as a victim.

But Grisso’s attorney said there was no direct evidence tying Grisso to the scene where Gardner’s body was found.
