Markus Kaarma, 30, is accused of fatally shooting Diren Dede, a German foreign exchange student who was searching for alcohol in Kaarma's Grant Creek garage in the early hours of April 27.

Kaarma's attorneys contend he shot the 17-year-old in self-defense after his home had been targeted by a ring of burglars; prosecutors, however, argue Kaarma and his partner, Janelle Pflager, baited would-be burglars into the garage to shoot them.
