It could be Friday before Judge Jim Bob Darnell makes a decision on whether or not to grant Callie Long a new trial.

Hearings for the request wrapped up Tuesday afternoon. If Judge Darnell does not grant Long a new trial, she must begin serving two years in prison for intoxicated manslaughter. In April, a Lubbock Jury found Long guilty of hitting bicyclist Brett Walrath while she was drunk. Walrath later died from those injuries.

Long's attorney claims she did not receive a fair trial and says the jury may have misunderstood the charges. Tuesday, jurors testified they understood the charges and were not misled during the trial.
