Massachusetts Prosecutors to Close Case in Kerrigan Trial

Massachusetts prosecutors are getting ready to wrap up their case in the manslaughter trial of the brother of Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan.

WOBURN, Mass.-- Massachusetts prosecutors are getting ready to wrap up their case in the manslaughter trial of the brother of Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan.

Mark Kerrigan is charged in the January 2010 death of his 70-year-old father, Daniel Kerrigan. Prosecutors allege that Mark Kerrigan's violent altercation with his father caused his dad's fatal heart attack.

Mark Kerrigan's family, including Nancy Kerrigan, have supported him. They say Daniel Kerrigan died of a longstanding heart condition and that Mark Kerrigan is not responsible.

Prosecutors told the judge they plan to finish presenting their case to the jury Wednesday, when a state medical examiner is expected to testify.

Kerrigan's lawyers won't say whether they plan to call Nancy Kerrigan as a witness. She has been in the courtroom this week for the first two days of testimony.
