CINCINNATI - The trial that hinges around a dying man's blinks could come to an end Monday if the jury reaches its verdict.

Ricardo Woods is charged in the October 2010 shooting of 35-year-old David Chandler. Police interrogated Chandler and had him answer questions about the details of his attack via blinks while he was severely injured in the hospital. Chandler later died.

Three blinks meant "yes" and two blinks meant "no" in response to the questions Chandler was asked.

The jury saw Chandler's controversial video testimony last week and will consider it in their decision (To watch the video, click on the media player above). Closing arguments in the case are set for Monday morning.

Prosecutors say that in the video, Chandler clearly identifies Woods, 35, as his attacker, while Woods' attorney said the blinks were inconsistent and unreliable.

The trial resumes Monday in the Judge Beth Myers' Hamilton County courtroom at 9 a.m.
