ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) — A prosecutor making his case with bones, blood and the testimony of those who came back from the past of a mysterious murder defendant is preparing to rest his case against the man who once masqueraded as a Rockefeller.

Deputy District Attorney Habib Balian says he plans to wrap up evidence Tuesday in the preliminary hearing for Christian Gerhartsreiter (GAYR'-hartz-ry-tur).

Gerhartsreiter is charged with murdering a San Marino man from whom he had rented a cottage in 1985.

Seven more witnesses are waiting to testify before Superior Court Judge Jared Moses is asked to decide whether there's enough evidence to hold Gerhartsreiter for trial.
