Jury ends for day in temple killings case

PHOENIX (AP) - A jury in the case of a man charged with killing nine people in a suburban Phoenix Buddhist temple more than two decades ago has ended deliberations for the day without reaching a verdict.
 
The jury incorporated an alternate after a female juror was excused Wednesday. She had told the judge deliberations had become too emotional for her.
 
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Kreamer instructed the panel Thursday morning that they were essentially a new jury. He said they had to start over in debating the fate of 39-year-old Johnathan A. Doody.
 
The jury isn't scheduled to resume deliberations until Oct. 14.
 
Doody is being re-tried after a federal appeals court threw out his 1993 conviction in 2011.
 
Six monks, a nun and two helpers were fatally shot.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
