Both sides have rested in the Houston retrial of a trucker accused in the nation's deadliest human smuggling attempt.

The federal jury has the rest of the holiday week off in the Tyrone Williams case. He did not testify.

Closing arguments are next Monday.

The case involves a failed May 2003 smuggling attempt that ended near Victoria.

Nineteen illegal immigrants died.

A jury last year convicted Williams last year on 38 transporting counts, but an appeals court threw out the decision.
