Prosecutors rested their case Thursday after calling 131 witnesses and submitting hundreds of pieces of evidence. The defense is expected to present witnesses and rest on Monday. Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh told jurors she expected them to have the case next week.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.

The jury will not be in court Friday. The judge sent them home Thursday with a reminder to be extra vigilant and not discuss the case over the holiday weekend.
