FOREST CITY, Iowa (KTTC) -- Closing arguments wrapped up Thursday in the arson trial of a former Forest City police officer.

Judge DeDra Schroeder will now deliberate a verdict in the case of 35-year-old Thaddeus Ellenbecker.

Ellenbecker is accused of setting fire to the evidence room of the Forest City police station in October 2011.
