JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Defense attorneys only plan to call one or two more witnesses in the trial of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music.

If that happens, prosecutors have the chance to call rebuttal witnesses before jurors are given their instructions.
