TROY N.Y. - The Adrian Thomas murder trial closing arguments are expected to begin at the Rensselaer County Courthouse Wednesday.

The Troy man is accused of forcibly throwing his four month old son onto a bed, causing head trauma that killed him.

The defense argued that an infection killed the infant, not trauma.

For almost two weeks the prosecution and defense have called in witnesses to make their case.

Tuesday the defense called its last witness to the stand, testifying via Skye, Doctor Barnes said the baby's autopsy results were inconclusive, and that the bleeding of the brain could have been from birth.

Key witness William Terry was brought forth by the prosecution taking the stand last week. Terry was in jail with Thomas and while they both were incarcerated Thomas allegedly admitted to killing his son.

In 2009 a jury found Thomas guilty of second degree murder but the conviction was thrown out. This is a re-trial for Thomas.

Closing arguments from both sides are expected to begin Wednesday at 9a.m. before the jury begins deliberations.
