BATON ROUGE - Defense attorneys for the rapper known as Lil Boosie rested their case without calling any witnesses, shortly after prosecutors rested this afternoon in Baton Rouge district court.

Attorney Jason Williams stated they felt the state, which has the burden of proof, did not prove their case.

Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, is accused of hiring Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding to kill Terry Boyd in 2009.

The judge charged the jury this afternoon before breaking.  Closing arguments will begin tomorrow morning.

News 2's Michael Shingleton will have more details from district court starting at 4 p.m.
