Norberg Case Goes to Jury

Posted: Updated:

In closing arguments today, prosecutor Gary Euren said this case is "not about the diagnoses, all the medications she was on, or the phone calls."

Euren said once Alonna found out the drug she was taking -- Diprivan -- was another name for the powerful anesthetic Propofol, she told her husband, defendant Jon Norberg, "Don't ever give me that stuff again, and get it out of our house."

Yet nine months later, she found Propofol in their house again.

The defensive attorney Robert Hoy had a different approach, arguing that, because she waited so long to report the alleged assault, Alonna is not credible.

Hoy accused Alonna of trying to play the "trump card in divorce" -- that is, allegations domestic assault --  in order to gain the upper hand and the ensuing custody battle.

If convicted in this case, Jon Norberg faces life in prison.





After calling a couple of witnesses early Tuesday morning, the prosecution has re-rested.

Court has recessed until 12:30 p.m. At that point, the jury will receive its instructions. That is expected to last about 15 minutes.

Following this, closing arguments will begin from the prosecution and defense.

The judge said the case should be handed over to the jury between 3 and 3:30 p.m.
