Closing arguments in the murder trial against former APD officer Levi Chavez could happen in the coming week.

The trial resumes Tuesday after the holiday break.

The jury could hear closing arguments as soon as Wednesday.

The defense started calling witnesses to the stand last week.

They included Chavez’s mother and former partner with APD.

Chavez is accused of killing his wife Tera and staging it to look like a suicide in their Los Lunas home in 2007.
