Ohio teen Brogan Rafferty's Craigslist slayings case now with jury

AKRON, Ohio - An Ohio jury has resumed 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.

The 12-person Akron jury resumed its deliberations Friday morning after getting the case the afternoon before.

One man was killed near Akron and two more in rural eastern Ohio.

A fourth man was shot in eastern Ohio but survived.
