MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) _ A three-judge panel in Connecticut is set to hear closing arguments in the trial of a Massachusetts man charged with fatally shooting a Wesleyan student in 2009.

The trial of 32-year-old Stephen Morgan of Marblehead, Mass., resumes Friday morning in state court in Middletown. He’s charged with killing 21-year-old Johanna (yoh-HAH’-nah JUHS’-tihn JIHN’-ihk) of Timnath, Colo., at an off-campus bookstore cafDe.

The judges may reach a verdict later Friday on whether Morgan is guilty or not guilty by reason of insanity. Psychiatrists have testified that Morgan has shown signs of paranoid schizophrenia.

Testimony and evidence at the trial has suggested that Morgan became infatuated with Justin-Jinich when the two met at New York University in 2007 and harassed her in emails and phone calls.
