NEVADA, Iowa (AP) - Prosecution and defense lawyers have finished presenting witness testimony in the trial of a man charged with killing a woman at a Coralville mall.

KCRG-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Qt9sSY ) state and defense lawyers concluded testimony Friday in the first-degree murder trial of Alexander Kozak, who is charged in the shooting death of Andrea Farrington at the Coral Ridge Mall on June 12.

Lawyers will make their closing arguments Monday, and the jury will begin deliberations.

Prosecutors say Farrington was shot three times while working in the mall. Police say Kozak told officers he “snapped” after getting a text from Farrington saying she was breaking off their relationship.

The trial was moved to Story County because of media attention.

If convicted, Kozak faces a mandatory life in prison sentence.
