STORY COUNTY, Iowa -- A Story County jury could start deliberations as soon as Monday in the trial of a man accused of killing a woman inside the Coralville mall.

Authorities say Alexander Kozak sought out and shot Andrea Farrington last June. Prosecutors say Kazak shot Farrington three times in the mall while Kozak worked there as a security guard. Farrington also worked in the Coralville mall.

Police say Kozak snapped after getting a text from Farrington saying she was going to break up the relationship.

Kozak is charged with first-degree murder but his defense claims he has mental issues.

On Monday, attorneys will make closing arguments and the jury is expected to begin deliberations.

A judge moved the trial to Story County because of all the attention it received in Johnson County.
