Closing arguments in the Basil Borutski murder trial will be heard Tuesday.

The jury could begin deliberations later in the afternoon depending on how long closing arguments take.

Borutski faces three charges of first degree murder in the 2015 deaths of Carol Culleton, Anastasia Kuzyk and Nathalie Warmerdam in the Madawaska Valley.

Borutski, who is representing himself at trial, has not cross examined any witnesses nor uttered any word in his defense.

After the Crown delivers its closing statement, Borutski will be offered the opportunity to give a closing statement.

A not guilty plea has been entered on Borutski’s behalf.
