WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal jury in Kansas is deliberating in the trial of a Canadian man accused of using his dead infant brother's identity to build a new life in the United States.

Attorneys made closing arguments Thursday in the case of 58-year-old Leslie Camick. The former Winfield, Kan., resident is charged with aggravated identity theft, obstructing justice and fraud.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brent Anderson called Camick an impostor who deceived the United States by stealing his dead brother's identity to flee Canada in 2000. The brother, Wayne Camick, died as an infant in 1957.

Defense attorney John Henderson told jurors a person's identity is who he or she is in relation to others. Henderson said the relationship is not defined by the name on a birth certificate.
