Murder trial witness: 'They were whooping each other, old school, in the front yard'

SHREVEPORT, LA (AP) - A Caddo Parish jury is hearing testimony in a murder case in which prosecutors say a dispute over a car that played out on Facebook eventually led to the stabbing death of 21-year-old Gabrielle "Gabby" Cooper.

Brittney Bre-shay McGill, who was 19 at the time, is on trial on a charge of second-degree murder.

The 22-year-old Shreveport woman has pleaded not guilty and is arguing self-defense.

During the trial, jurors have heard testimony from lead investigators and witnesses to a brutal fight that took place just before the fatal stabbing.

Closing arguments are set for Friday.
