SEATTLE (AP) - A woman on trial for killing six of her family members in Carnation on Christmas Eve 2007 has decided not to take the stand in her own defense.

The Seattle Times reports (https://goo.gl/6WCrMD ) that Michele Anderson had initially told the judge she would testify, indicating she would tell jurors of her fractured relationship with her attorneys, who she has accused of misconduct. But the defense rested its case after she ultimately decided against taking the stand.

Closing arguments will begin Wednesday.

Anderson is charged with aggravated murder in the fatal shootings of her six family members. Her former boyfriend, Joseph McEnroe, is already serving six life sentences after being convicted of the same killings.

Anderson faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.
