A jury began deliberations in the trial of two men accused of killing a Border Patrol agent during a shootout in the Arizona desert in 2010, The Star Tribune reports. 

The case wrapped up Wednesday in a federal court in Tucson.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry encountered the robbers of drug dealers and was killed in a shootout.

Prosecutors charged Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza, also known as Lionel Portillo-Meza, and Ivan Soto-Barraza in the killing.

Prosecutor Todd Wallace Robinson told jurors that evidence, which includes DNA, fingerprints and confessions, proves the defendants are guilty of all nine counts, which includes first-degree murder.

“It doesn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt. It proves it beyond any doubt whatsoever,” Robinson said in a closing statement.
