FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) -Update: 11:30 a.m. The jury has found the defendant – Steven Nelson – guilty of capital murder. More details soon.

***

FORT WORTH (AP) - The defense considers whether to produce more evidence as the capital murder trial of North Texas man moves closer to being handed to the jury.

Testimony resumes Monday in state district court in Fort Worth after Steven Lawayne Nelson testified in his own defense. He denied killing the Rev. Clint Dobson at his Arlington church in March 2011. Rather, he insisted that he remained outside the NorthPointe Baptist Church while two friends went inside and committed the deed.

However, he admitted that he entered the church and stepped around the bodies of the victims, who were still breathing, to steal a laptop computer.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
