Jury deliberations to resume in Conroy case
Jury deliberations are scheduled to resume today in the trial of a Medford teen accused of killing an Ecuadorian.
Jeffrey Conroy, 19, pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter as hate crimes, as well as other charges, in the November 2008 death of Marcelo Lucero.
The jury is considering several charges, including second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter. During deliberations yesterday, the jury requested definitions of the charges and another look at Conroy's clothing from the night of the incident.
Four alternate jurors, including Kosmos Hionidid, were released yesterday. Hionidid says he doesn't think Conroy intended to kill Lucero, but that Conroy hurt his case when he implicated another teen. AP wire services contributed to this article.
