The jury in actor Robert Blake's civil trial are expected to take charge of the case tomorrow (04NOV05) as attorneys wrap up their closing arguments.

The BARETTA star, who was acquitted of the murder of his wife, BONNIE LEE BAKLEY, earlier this year (05) is being sued for the wrongful death by his stepchildren.

Turning up to the court house in Burbank, California alone this morning (03NOV05), Blake was philosophical about the ongoing trial, stating, "This ain't my first day at the rodeo, it won't be my last day at the rodeo."

In court yesterday (02NOV05), Blake took the stand to declare again that he had no hand in the death of his wife.
