PHOENIX - Jurors in the case of a man charged in the 1991 killings of nine people at a suburban Phoenix Buddhist temple will resume deliberations Tuesday.
The panel met Monday but did not reach a verdict in the trial of 39-year-old Johnathan A. Doody.
Jurors had been on a break since Oct. 3. That's the day deliberations restarted with an alternate juror replacing one who was excused a day earlier.
The original panel started deliberating on Sept. 24. Doody's trial began Aug. 12.
Doody was 17 when authorities say he participated in the gunning down of six monks, a nun and two helpers during a robbery.
He was convicted in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison.
A federal appeals court overturned Doody's conviction in 2011, noting he wasn't properly read his rights.
