Closings Ahead In Ohio Teen Killings Trial

Cincinnati (AP) -- Jurors are expected to begin deliberations after closing arguments in the trial of an Ohio man charged with killing two teenage girls and burning their bodies.

Jurors may hear one more witness Friday before the prosecution gives its closing and deliberations begin in the trial of 41-year-old Anthony Kirkland.

Kirkland's attorneys have said their client admitted killing the teens, and they didn't plan to call witnesses in the guilt-or-innocence phase of the trial.

A second phase will be necessary if Kirkland is convicted.

Jurors would have to determine whether he should be executed.

Kirkland pleaded guilty last week to murdering two women and burning their bodies.

He was to have been tried in all four killings.
