The jury is now deciding the fate of a Maryland man accused of killing a Union County teen.

Phylicia Barnes disappeared while visiting her sister over Christmas in 2010.

Her body was found floating in a river several months later.

Investigators say Michael Johnson killed the teen, putting her body in a plastic bin.

On Monday, defense attorneys called only one witness before resting their case.

In closing arguments, prosecutors admitted they had no smoking gun.
