Teen's Murder Trial Goes to Jury

CLARION, Iowa (AP) -- Closing arguments are set to begin in the case of a rural Osage teenager accused of shooting his mother to death.
   Testimony ended Thursday in the trial of 14-year-old Noah Crooks in Wright County District Court in Clarion. He's charged with first-degree murder and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse in the March 24, 2012, killing of his 37-year-old mother, Gretchen.
   The teen is relying on an insanity defense.
   A prosecution psychiatrist, Dr. Michael Taylor of Des Moines, testified Thursday that Noah wasn't suffering from a diagnosable mental illness when the shooting occurred.
   Defense psychiatrist Dr. Donner Dewdney, of Des Moines, says Noah suffered from a disorder that resulted in periods of rage.
   After closing arguments, jurors will begin deliberating the case.
