TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Defense attorneys will begin presenting their case in the trial of a man accused in the death of a Topeka woman and the wounding of her friend.

The prosecution rested its case Wednesday in the first-degree murder trial of 26-year-old Anceo D. Stovall. He faces first-degree murder and numerous other charges in the death last July of 40-year-old Natalie Gibson. She and 42-year-old Lori Allison were shot outside their Topeka home.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Stovall's attorney will begin calling witnesses Thursday.

On Wednesday, a 17-year-old girl who has admitted acting as a lookout during the shootings testified against Stovall. She said people involved in the robbery wanted to stop when they saw the women were home, but Stovall urged them to continue with the crime.
