"We will never have to deal with that man again.""It was a mall filled with children and families and yeah, I feel that justice has been served," said Cheryl Farrington.
(WATCH VIDEO)Closing arguments were presented Monday morning and early afternoon and the jury started deliberating the case about 2 p.m.
CLOSING ARGUMENTS: The defense closing was followed by the rebuttal argument by Prosecutor Janet Lyness.
She said there is no evidence at all that Farrington was interfering with Kozak's job and called the claim a "red herring."Lyness said there is nothing to suggest Kozak didn't know the nature of his relationship with Farrington.
She said Kozak's plan was to completely obliterate the pain and to kill Farrington.
Lyness said that even if you believe Kozak had disorders, they don't prevent someone from deliberation and having intent to kill.
She said "snapped" is not a defense and not a mental defect that explains his behavior.
Defense attorney Alfredo Parrish started his closing argument by calling the case "unusual."Parrish said it was a crime of passion, a tragedy and forever altered lots of lives.
Parrish told jurors you must remove any sympathy you for either of the parties and just focus on the facts. He said that doesn't make her evil but you have to think about what she put in his mind.
