Closing arguments from the defense were made Thursday as the trial for Christina Marcum winds down, with statements claiming that investigators had it in for Marcum.

Her attorney said officials assumed that Marcum was involved in the murder of Jason Singleton's wife based on her request for a lawyer, even though the defense argued she was cooperative with investigators and talked to them frequently.

Marcum's lawyer said regardless of there being no evidence to convict her of any involvement, police have already presumed Marcum as guilty and prosecutors are using "half-truths" in the trial to make her seem jealous and "crazy."

The case now rests on the jury, as deliberations on Marcum's alleged involvement begin.
