The prosecution and defense rested Wednesday in the retrial of Anne Marie Drago.
The Patchogue woman is accused of running over and killing anti-gang activist Evelyn Rodriguez during a 2018 argument in Brentwood.
Drago was convicted of criminally negligent homicide at her first trial, but a state appeals court tossed out the conviction, claiming that the prosecutor mischaracterized evidence and confused the jury.
Closing arguments in the case are expected to start Thursday.
