LAS VEGAS - The judge and lawyers for both sides in the O.J. Simpson kidnapping and armed robbery case are meeting behind closed doors to work on jury instructions, and plan to present them before closing arguments later Thursday.

Simpson and a co-defendant are accused of robbing and holding two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint a year ago to get back mementos that once belonged to the former NFL star.

Neither Simpson nor Clarence "C.J." Stewart testified before their lawyers rested their cases Wednesday.

Simpson and Stewart have pleaded not guilty to 12 charges. Each man could face five years to life in prison if convicted in the confrontation.
