COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - After hours of closing arguments, James Brock, the man accused of murdering the mother of his children, Tyesha McNair and her friend Terrence Clark will hear the judge's verdict on Monday.

     This afternoon defense attorney Shevon Thomas began closing arguments presenting a time-line to the judge that implicated flaws in the testimony of several of the prosecution's key witnesses.

     The defense asked the judge to return a verdict of not guilty on all counts due to lack of physical evidence that puts James Brock at the scene of the murder. Meanwhile the father of the second murder victim Terrence Clark was happy with the prosecutions

"I think the prosecutor did an excellent job of proving their case, there is no doubt the case will prevail in our behalf," Milton Clark said.

    The prosecution asked the judge to return a verdict of guilty on all counts. After hearing both sides Judge Bobby Peters will review all of the evidence in this case over the weekend.

    Terrence Clark's father says that today brought out a number of emotions for his family.

     "Have a lot of anger hatred and then again I guess that's me, between me and the lord everything will be just fine," Clark said.
