PITTSBURGH (AP) - Attorneys defending a Pittsburgh man accused of robbing and killing two sisters who lived next door have rested their case.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1W11atY ) reports that a computer crimes detective was the last witness called Tuesday in the Allegheny County trial of 45-year-old Allen Wade.

Wade is accused of killing 44-year-old Susan Wolfe and 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe after they returned from work the night of Feb. 6, 2014. They were sisters of Democratic Iowa state Rep. Mary Wolfe.

Allegheny County prosecutors say surveillance video and DNA show that Wade had contact with the women and used their bank machine cards shortly after they were killed.

Wade’s former girlfriend testified that he was watching TV with her at the time of the murders.

Closing arguments are scheduled Wednesday.
