A Summit County judge has upheld a jury's verdict, sentencing craigslist killer Richard Beasley to death.
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.
A triple killer who lured victims with bogus job offers on Craigslist faced a possible death sentence before an Ohio judge deciding his punishment.
