ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The trial of two brothers charged in a hit-and-run that killed a Rogers County teen and badly hurt another is starting to come to an end.

Closing arguments in Gage and Dakota Shriver’s trial began Friday afternoon and the case is expected to go to the jury for deliberations Friday evening.

The jury was supposed to get its instructions and start deliberating Friday morning but the judge ordered a break until 1:30 p.m. and the jury wasn’t seated until after 2:00 p.m.

The prosecution gave a very passionate closing argument, causing many in the courtroom to get emotional, including Miranda Tally, who left the courtroom because she was so upset.

The district attorney opened with a statement about Noelle New living a sensational life before she died a horrific death. When he brought up details of her death, New’s family and friends cried in the court.

The Shriver brothers are accused of hitting and killing New and injuring Talley in June 2015 while the girls were walking on a dark road in Rogers County.

The district attorney told the jury the crime was no accident and very preventable.

He said Gage and Dakota Shriver showed extreme disregard for human life and put every person at risk that night when Gage got drunk before he got behind the wheel.

The defense began its closing argument just before 5:00 p.m. and said the district attorney overcharged the brothers and is using character assassination as a technique to sensationalize the case.

The defense said the brothers didn't see New or Talley at any time. They talked about lighting conditions at 5:30 in the morning.

Dakota Shriver's attorney also highlighted what he said were inconsistencies in Talley's story.

Jurors could convict the brothers of second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, or find them not guilty.
