Closing arguments expected in UK tourists deaths

Closing arguments expected in Fla., where 17-year-old is accused of killing U.K. tourists By The Associated Press

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) ' Attorneys in Florida are expected to give their closing arguments in the trial against a 17-year-old accused of killing two British tourists in April of 2011.

Wednesday is the eighth day of Shawn Tyson's trial. He's accused of shooting 24-year-old James Kouzaris and 25-year-old James Cooper. The two men were vacationing in Sarasota and ended up dead in a housing project early one morning after a night of drinking.

It's unclear why the men were walking in the housing project.

On Tuesday, the prosecution called several witnesses, including two who said they saw Tyson with a .22 caliber gun similar to the weapon used in the slayings. Late in the day, the prosecution rested its case and the defense called a crime scene technician as a witness.
