Following closing arguments Tuesday, the trial of a 43-year-old St. Croix County (Wisconsin) man on trial in the fatal shooting of his son went to the jury.
Jurors were given their instructions in the trial of Kayle Fleischauer, who has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
They were deliberating Tuesday afternoon. If a verdict had not been reached by 4:30 p.m., they were scheduled to get going again at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Authorities say Fleischauer shot and killed his 19-year-old son, Chase, a college student and Tartan High School graduate, in April 2018.
The defense claims Chase accidentally shot himself.
Prosecutors said Chase had bruises on his neck, arm, back of ear and a lengthy scratch on his neck after a "beating" from his father. The defense contended the two were just wrestling.
