JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- Final arguments in the death penalty trial of a southwestern Indiana man charged with setting a fire that killed his fiancee's two children are set for Tuesday.
Closing arguments are expected to begin Tuesday morning in the case against Jeffrey Weisheit. He's charged with the murder of 8-year-old Alyssa Lynch and 5-year-old Caleb Lynch and arson of the home where they lived on April 10, 2010. The children died in a fire that engulfed the entire home.
Clark Circuit Judge Dan Moore has given both sides one hour of time for closing arguments.
Weisheit's trial was moved from Evansville to Jeffersonville because of extensive media coverage in southwest Indiana.
