AVOCA, Iowa (AP) — A judge is expected to hand down her verdict Friday in the second trial of a man who'd been convicted of killing a woman at his western Iowa home.

The Daily Nonpareil reports that prosecution and defense lawyers tussled during their final arguments Thursday over whether Robert Reynolds had drunkenly hallucinated that 64-year-old Patricia Kinkade-Dorsey was possessed by a demon when he shot her.

Reynolds was convicted in November 2014 of killing Kinkade-Dorsey after a night of drinking at his and his wife's Oakland home. Kinkade-Dorsey was a friend of his wife.

The Iowa Appeals Court later ordered a new trial, ruling that the trial judge erroneously changed the first trial's location.

Judge Susan Christensen has said she'll have the verdict in the second, nonjury trial read Friday.
