LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - The murder trial for a man charged in the death of an 82-year-old man which began Wednesday is coming to a conclusion.  

Judge Rucker Smith has given the jury its instructions, and they are expected to begin their deliberations, after defense attorney McCall Calhoun and Prosecutor Lewis Lamb made their final remarks.

Timothy French, 44, is charged with felony murder and the armed robbery of A. J. Mosley of Smithville. Lamb told the jury that Timothy French's DNA was found in the pockets of the pants Mosley was wearing when he was murdered.

Investigators said Mosley was stabbed to death during the robbery attempt at his Pettis Road home on January 15, 2008. Investigators reached out for weeks to the community in an effort to get leads in the case, but they were unsuccessful.

Then, in January of 2014, a full six years after the death investigation began, French was arrested in Smithville. Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents said he had long been a person of interest, but said they obtained physical evidence that indicated French was responsible for the crime.

According to the Georgia Department of Corrections, Timothy French has served four previous sentences in prison for non-violent crimes.
