Jurors will resume deliberations at the trial of an Arizona man charged with plotting an attack at a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas.

Tuesday will mark the second day of deliberations at the trial of Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem.

The 44-year-old moving company owner is accused of hosting two friends at his home to discuss plans for the May 3 attack in Garland, Texas.

Investigators say Kareem provided the guns used in the attack and went target shooting with two friends who were later killed in a police shootout outside the contest.

He also is charged with providing support to the Islamic State terrorist group.

Kareem vehemently denies the allegations.

Jurors heard closing arguments Friday and met privately for about 20 minutes before going home for the weekend.
