GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - The case of a Texas man accused of killing two Grand Island men has been handed over to a jury.

Closing statements were delivered Wednesday in the trial of 34-year-old Marco Torres Jr., of Pasadena, Texas. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He's also charged with robbery, three weapons counts and an unauthorized use of a debit card.

He's accused of fatally shooting 60-year-old Edward Hall and 48-year-old Timothy Donohue in March 2007. Their bodies were found in Hall's home.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Torres did not testify during the trial that began last week.

The jury will be sequestered until it reaches a verdict.

Last year, Torres was sentenced to 90 years in prison in a separate kidnapping and robbery case.
