SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Closing arguments are expected early this week in the trial of the man accused of trying to kill CBS News 8 sports director Kyle Kraska.
The defense will begin presenting its case Monday.
Mike Montana, 55, is charged with attempted murder for the ambush shooting outside Kraska's home in February 2015.
Kraska was shot in the bicep, leg and twice in the chest on Feb. 20, 2015. Bullets damaged his liver and one of his lungs.
Prosecutors say Montana sought to murder Kraska because Kraska wouldn't pay $2,200 for a house painting job Montana never finished. Montana's defense argues he was on medication at the time and never intended to kill Kyle.
Kraska testified that he hired Montana to paint the outside of his home in the fall of 2014, with an agreement that called for $800 up front and $2,200 upon completion. The witness said he wrote a check for $800, but Montana failed to show up the first day and his attendance was not very good after that.
