PHOENIX - A jury will begin a third day of deliberations Thursday in the case of a man charged with killing nine people at a Buddhist temple in suburban Phoenix in 1991.
Johnathan A. Doody is being re-tried after a federal appeals court threw out his 1993 conviction after finding his confession wasn't voluntary.
Six monks, a nun and two helpers were killed.
In his closing argument, Doody's lawyer told jurors they shouldn't believe the key witness against his client.
But prosecutor Jason Kalish told jurors only Doody and the accomplice who testified against him were responsible and the accomplice told the truth.
The jury went home without reaching a verdict after deliberating all day Wednesday.
