The verdict for a Jefferson City murder case is expected to be announced next week.

Alfred Chism Jr. was in the Cole County Courthouse on Friday. Judge Daniel Green is expected to release his verdict at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. Chism is charged with first-degree murder and armed-criminal action.

Both sides wrapped up presenting evidence Friday afternoon. Prosecutors say Chism shot and killed Charon Session on Aug. 27, 2018, at a home in the 900 block of Tanya Lynn Drive. Chism's attorneys claim it was in self-defense.

In a separate case, a court date for Chism is set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9 for a fourth-degree assault charge.
