Jurors should hear closing arguments this morning in the trial of a woman accused of murdering her estranged husband in a Leavenworth parking lot.

Jurors then will begin their deliberations in the case of Barbara M. Frantz.

Frantz, 52, Kansas City, Kansas, is charged with first-degree murder.

She is accused of shooting her estranged husband, Gary, Jan. 27, 2017, in a parking lot outside of Stove Factory Lofts in downtown Leavenworth.

The defense team is arguing that the victim was shot by his son.

Testimony in the trial wrapped up Thursday.

“We've been going over jury instructions,” County Attorney Todd Thompson said Thursday afternoon.

His office is prosecuting the case.

The trial began June 25 with jury selection.

Thompson said officials in his office believe the two-week trial may be the longest of its kind in Leavenworth County history.

There was a break in the trial Wednesday because of the Independence Day holiday.
