FILE - In this Wednesday, May 27, 2015 file photo, Wayne Burgarello listens as a witness takes the stand at the Washoe County District Court, in Reno, Nev. A Nevada prosecutor on Friday, May 29, urged jurors to convict Burgarello of first-degree murder, saying he was seeking out a deadly confrontation when he shot two unarmed trespassers in a vacant duplex he owns.
