Jury deliberates in Morales trial

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla._The jury is four hours into deliberations in Stephens County as the fate of a Duncan doctor, accused of shooting his ex-wife's boyfriend in the leg, is being decided.

Closing arguments were presented in the trial of Dr. Oscar Morales Friday morning. The jury began deliberating around 1:00 p.m. Dr. Morales has maintained that he shot the man in self-defense last August because he feared for his life during a confrontation outside his ex-wife's home.

It's unclear how long the jury is expected to deliberate.
