The defense rested Thursday morning in the Hugo Selenski double murder trial. Selenski decided not to take the stand and testify in his own defense.

Selenski is accused of gunning down two drug dealers at his home in Kingston Township near Dallas in 2003 and burning the bodies.

 Before the defense rested, they called an inmate from the Luzerne County jail who claimed another inmate lied during testimony.

 The prosecution called one witness Thursday afternoon.  Closing arguments will begin on Monday.  There will be no proceedings Friday.
