PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A prosecutor has again played for jurors a 911 call in which a Michigan teen tells the dispatcher that his grandmother just shot him and then is shot again while on the phone.
Prosecutor Paul Walton said during his closing argument Monday that jurors should convict Sandra Layne of premeditated murder in the killing last May of her grandson, Jonathan Hoffman. Jurors could convict her of a lesser charge, such as manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter.
Walton says the murder conviction is warranted because Layne fired 10 shots over a six-minute span, striking Hoffman six times.
The 75-year-old Layne says she shot her grandson in self-defense at her home in the Detroit suburb of West Bloomfield Township after he struck her.
Jurors are expected to begin deliberations Monday.
