BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - The jury hearing the trial of a Georgia man charged with killing his father and seven extended family members inside their mobile home will continue deliberations Thursday.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys for 26-year-old Guy Heinze Jr. made closing arguments Wednesday and jurors broke for the night after about seven hours of deliberations.
Heinze could face the death penalty if he's convicted of malice murder in the Aug. 29, 2009, slayings at the cramped mobile home he shared with the victims just outside the port city of Brunswick.
Police say they believe Heinze, who admitted he had been using crack cocaine, single handedly clubbed the victims to death with a shotgun barrel.
Defense attorneys say police ignored evidence and alternate suspects in their rush to build a case against Heinze.
