An Ohio jury has concluded deliberations for the day 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.

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

A fourth man was shot in eastern Ohio but survived.

The 12-person Akron jury met all day Friday and will resume deliberations Monday morning.
