MARHSALL Co., Ala. (WHNT) — The defense and the prosecution called experts to the stand Thursday to testify in would be the last of the evidence the jury would hear before they’re asked to make a decision.

A DNA expert testified much of the DNA found at the 2009 Claysville murder scene was a match to  Wesley Claude Burgess, the man accused of killing Rick Moody. The defense argued since some of the DNA wasn’t tested there was room for doubt.

The family and friends of Rick Moody were asked to leave the room while a medical examiner told the jury and the judge what her investigation yielded, and how Moody was killed.

Closing arguments are expected to happen Friday morning.
