JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors have rested in the first-degree murder retrial of a white Florida man who fatally shot a black teenager after an argument over loud music outside a convenience store.

State Attorney Angela Corey on Monday ended her case against 47-year-old Michael Dunn by interviewing the medical examiner, who discussed bullet wounds found on the victim's body.

Prosecutors say Dunn killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis, of Marietta, Georgia, by firing 10 times into an SUV occupied by four teens in November 2012.

A previous jury found Dunn guilty of attempted second-degree murder for firing the shots, but deadlocked on first-degree murder.

Dunn faces at least 60 years in prison for the convictions.

The defense can now present its case to the jury, and Dunn is expected to testify.
