TULSA, OK -- Attorneys give their closing arguments on Thursday in the double murder trial of Raymond Johnson.

He's accused of brutally beating his girlfriend, Brooke Whitaker and then setting her house on fire, killing her baby, Kya.       

Johnson's attorney rested on Wednesday without calling a single witness.  Prosecutors wrapped up their case, too, calling about 20 witnesses.

Jurors also heard a taped confession where Johnson admitted the crime to police.  Deliberations begin on Thursday.  If convicted, Johnson could get the death penalty.
