BENTON, LA (KSLA) - A Bossier District Court judge says a verdict could be reached by Friday night in the trial of a man accused of fatally stabbing a Barksdale Air Force Base airman.

Prosecutors rested their case Wednesday evening against 21-year-old Benjamin Shaw.

Testimony is set to resume at 9 a.m. Thursday with Shaw's attorney presenting his defense.

A pathologist testified Tuesday that 34-year-old Tech. Sgt. Zechariah Casagranda died after being stabbed multiple times in rapid succession during a fight Jan. 23, 2016, outside a Bossier City nightclub.

Shaw is being tried on a charge of second-degree murder.
