Closing arguments will begin Thursday morning in the trial of a Bryan man accused of killing his wife.
Bobbie Tates has pleaded not guilty to shooting his wife, Carolyn, in August 2006. She later died from her injuries.
During opening statements Tuesday, prosecutors told jurors the 54-year-old threatened to send his wife to heaven if she did not respect him.
When she didn't do what he wanted in August 2006, Tates allegedly shot his wife in the stomach.
Both the state and defense rested their cases Wednesday.
If convicted, Tates could face up to 99 years or life in prison.
