A jury in Michigan is returning for closing arguments and deliberations today in the fatal stabbing of a 49-year-old man, the last Michigan attack linked to a knifing spree two summers ago.

Three mental health experts testifying for prosecutors say Elias Abuelazam was not mentally ill and can be held
criminally responsible for the death of Arnold Minor. A psychiatrist for the defense offered a very different opinion.

The jury will hear closing arguments and get instructions from a
judge Tuesday. Police said the victim's blood was found in Abuelazam's car and inside his luggage.

Fourteen people were stabbed in and around Flint in summer 2010, and five died. Abuelazam is charged in nine of those stabbings,
including three deaths. He's charged with attempted murder in
Toledo, Ohio.
