(Newser) – OJ Simpson’s defense team rested its case today without calling the former football star to testify in his armed robbery and kidnapping trial in Las Vegas. Though the prosecution can still call rebuttal witnesses, the case could go to jury tomorrow, the Review-Journal reports. Lawyers for Simpson's co-defendant called just one witness before resting.
