Closing arguments in the attempted murder trial of Sam Lincoln will get underway tomorrow morning.

Tuesday in court, several drug experts were called to the stand to explain what kinds of effects, if any, meth could have had on Lincoln during the alleged shooting of James Finnegan in 2005.

One expert from the Mesa County Sheriff's Office says the drug does not prevent users from thinking clearly or making decisions, but that the nature of the addiction could alter a person's moral compass.

Lincoln is accused of shooting Finnegan in the desert north of Grand Junction, and leaving him for dead. Last month he pled guilty to one count of first degree assault in the shooting.

Jury deliberations are expected to begin tomorrow afternoon.

Lincoln's co-defendant, Charles Pruitt will be tried once Lincoln's trial is over.
