(INDEPENDENCE, Mo.) Yesterday, in a Jackson County courtroom, the man accused of killing St. Joseph's Cody Harter in a road rage incident took the stand in his own murder trial.

Nicholas Webb of Pleasant Hill told jurors he stabbed the 23-year-old harter in self defense.

Webb admitted he and Harter got into an altercation on I-470 and pulled off the road together.

But Webb said Harter initiated contact between the two by grabbing his arm and that Webb pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed harter in self defense.

Webb then said he panicked and drove off because he was a convicted felon, convicted in a 1981 Cass county murder.

The trial is set to head to the jury this afternoon.

Temperatures today will remain slightly above average with highs in the mid 80s. Most of today will be dry and sunny, but a weak cold front will move through late this afternoon into this evening giving us the chance for a few isolated showers and storms. Conditions will stay comfortable this weekend with highs in the mid 80s on Saturday and upper 80s on Sunday. Temperatures will start off above average on Monday before a cold front moves through. That front will give us additional rain chances Monday night and some much more fall like temperatures through the rest of the week.
