ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The defense rested Thursday in the death penalty sentencing trial of Jamie Underwood.

Underwood admits he killed six people during home invasions in Tift and Colquitt Counties three years ago.

Friday, both sides will make their closing arguments in the case leaving Judge Gary McCorvey to decide whether Underwood will be sentenced to death for the crimes. 

This week the defense laid out a timeline of events and information about Jamie Underwood's family history. Underwood is charged with six counts of murder in the deaths of six hispanic men. Four others were hurt in a string of attacks in September 2005.

During the two week trial, victims families and people who survived the attacks testified, along with Underwood's family. The trial will resume Friday at 9:00 a.m.
