Murder Trial Could Wrap Up Soon

MAY 24, 2006 -- A murder trial involving a fatal accident in Columbus County could wrap up by the end of the week. The prosecution rested Wednesday in Jose Lopez's trial.  He's charged with second degree murder.

Prosecutors say he was drunk when he slammed into 20-year-old Natalie Housand's car back in 2004, killing her. Lopez's defense attorney says he was too drunk to remember what happened that night.
