In closing arguments Wednesday, the defense argued that Allen acted in self-defense while prosecutors call it a reckless and deliberate act.

If convicted of manslaughter in the second degree, Allen will face up to 15 years in prison. The judge told jurors they can convict Allen of a lesser charge of criminally negligent homicide.

Jury deliberations will resume Thursday morning.
