LOUISVILLE KY (WAVE) - Closing arguments are scheduled to begin Wednesday morning in the trial of a man charged with murder.

Steven Pettway is on trial for the 2nd time in Troya Sheckles' murder.

In court Tuesday Pettway's aunt and brother were called to testify and it was revealed Pettway had lived in Louisville for less than a year before Sheckles murder.

Sheckles was shot and killed in Shelby Park in 2009 before she could testify against the man accused of killing her boyfriend.

The defense rested Tuesday. The case will be given to the jury once the closing arguments have been presented.
