Testimony Ends in Case of Shooting Over Deer Feed
ST. PAUL (AP) - Testimony has concluded in the case of a New Brighton woman accused of encouraging her husband to fatally shoot their neighbor.
Paula Zumberge faces charges including aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
Attorneys made their closing statements Wednesday. Defense attorney Gary Wolf says he planned to call Zumberge and her husband to the stand, but changed his mind because he didn't think prosecutors had proven their case.
Zumberge waived her right to a jury trial. A judge is expected to rule next week.
Jennifer Damerow-Cleven was injured in the attack that left her boyfriend dead. Wolf accused her of lying on the witness stand.
Zumberge's husband is charged separately in the fatal shooting. Investigators say he blamed his Lyme disease on his neighbors' practice of feeding deer in their backyard.
