FORT MEADE, Maryland (CNN) -- Closing arguments are under way in the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst charged with the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history.

He is accused of handing over a trove of documents and other information to WikiLeaks, an organization that facilitates the anonymous leaking of secret information through its website.

One of the most serious charges Manning faces is aiding the enemy, which would carry a maximum penalty of life in prison. He already has pleaded guilty to nearly a dozen lesser charges that carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

The judge, Col. Denise Lind, will rule on the case, since Manning elected to waive trial by jury panel.

Before closing arguments began, the judge denied a defense motion for directed verdict on the minor charges, mostly alleging theft of 74,000 e-mail addresses of troops in Iraq from the military's Global Address List.
