OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - The case of a metro woman who was accused of killing an Iowa woman in 2012 had its closing arguments Tuesday. 

Forty-one-year-old Shanna Goylar is accused of killing 37-year-old Cari Farver in November of 2012. No one has seen the missing Farver since then. Prosecutors say Golyar stabbed Farver to death in her vehicle, disposed of her body and then used her phone and fake email accounts to make it look like Farver was stalking a man in the middle of a love triangle between Golyar and Farver. 

The defense says without a body, no one can be sure if Farver is dead, or if she was murdered.

"This was such a convoluted complicated extensive scheme it included the defendant even making police reports that she was the victim of crimes Cari Farver committed on her," Douglas County Deputy Attorney Jim Mastellar said. 

Golyar is also accused of starting a fire at her own home and trying to blame it on Farver. The judge will give a verdict Wednesday morning.
