HARTFORD —  A Connecticut jury is weighing the case of a Hartford man charged with using a shotgun to kill his teenage girlfriend.

The jury in the murder trial of 24-year-old Torrick Maragh started deliberating on Friday and is expected to continue this week.

Maragh is charged in the January 2016 killing of 18-year-old girlfriend Nasashalie Hoy in the basement of a Hartford home. She was a senior at A.I. Prince Technical High School.

The Hartford Court reports that during closing statements Friday the prosecutor said Maragh was driven by “jealousy and rage” during an argument over Hoy’s cellphone and her interest in another man.

A defense attorney said Hoy shot herself and Maragh was genuinely distraught when police arrived. He said the prosecution hadn’t proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
