(Fargo, ND) -- Closing arguments in the Arthur Kollie murder trial are set to get underway Thursday.

Kollie is accused of the brutal murder of 14-year-old Jupiter Paulsen in June of 2021 next to the Party City in South Fargo.

Paulsen's father testified Tuesday, while Kollie's sister, counselors, and employees from Fraser testified Wednesday in what was the final day of arguments.

Kollie's sister said she believed her brother's paranoia had gotten worse in the days leading up to the murder.
