Defense Rests in Teen Murder Trial

Prosecutors said 18-year-old Cyntoia Brown shot Johnny Allen in the back of the head while he was sleeping in his bed.

The defense said Brown shot Allen because she thought he was reaching for a gun to shoot her.

Today, a witness for the defense took the stand, saying she was raped by Allen and was fearful of him.

The defense called all of its witnesses, and planed to give closing arguments Friday.
