AKRON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio jury is headed into the first full day of deliberations in the case of a teenager accused of participating in the slayings of three men lured by phony Craigslist job offers.
Prosecutors have portrayed defendant Brogan Rafferty as a full accomplice in the crimes while his defense attorney argues he was a scared child stuck in a horrible situation.
The 17-year-old Rafferty faces life in prison without chance of parole if convicted of aggravated murder in the shooting deaths of the men last year.
A 12-person Akron jury was scheduled to resume deliberations Friday morning after getting the case the afternoon before.
One man was killed near Akron and two more in rural eastern Ohio.
