The Latest: Jury nears deliberations in ex-NFL star's trial (The Associated Press)

A prosecutor and a lawyer for ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez have finished their closing arguments in his double-murder trial. In his final appeal to jurors, prosecutor Patrick Haggan said Hernandez gunned down two men in Boston in 2012 because he had ”an illogical sense of being disrespected.” He said Hernandez became enraged after one of the men had accidentally bumped into Hernandez at a nightclub and spilled his drink. In his closing argument, Hernandez’s lawyer called the state’s star witness the real killer.
