WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A 36-year-old Cedar Falls woman is waiting for a judge to decide whether she’s guilty of murder.

After closing arguments on Thursday, the case against Kristie Clark-Richardson went to Judge George Stigler, who is presiding over the nonjury trial in Waterloo.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says the judge is awaiting written comments from defense and prosecution attorneys on how a video of Clark-Richardson talking to investigators pertains to the charges of first-degree murder versus second-degree murder or other, lesser charges. The comments are due to the judge on Friday.

Clark-Richardson is accused of stabbing to death 38-year-old Keon Dale in March 2013 outside his Waterloo apartment. She is claiming self-defense.
