WOBURN (CBS) – The trial of a Wayland man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend went to the jury Tuesday.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Doug Cope reports

Nate Fujita, 20, is charged with killing 18-year-old Lauren Astley in July 2011.

Closing arguments were presented on Tuesday morning.

Fujita’s lawyers are claiming an insanity defense.

Prosecutors insist he was not mentally ill, but furious and motivated by rage when he killed Astley after she broke up with him.
