On Monday, an informant testified that Doty talked about the murder of Tyshawn Lee all day every day in the jail.

Last week Jalen Anderson, who was 14 at the time, testified in court. He said he was in the area when Tyshwan was killed and saw a man carrying a gun.

Closing arguments could begin as early as Thursday.
