Deliberations resume in temple slayings trial

PHOENIX (AP) - A jury is resuming deliberations in the third trial of a man charged with killing nine people at a suburban Phoenix Buddhist temple in 1991.

Johnathan A. Doody was found guilty in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison. But an appeals court threw out his conviction in 2011, ruling that investigators improperly obtained his confession.

His second trial ended in a mistrial in October after jurors deadlocked. Doody's third trial began Dec. 4.

Jurors got the case late Monday afternoon. Deliberations resumed Thursday morning.

Authorities say Doody and an accomplice robbed the temple before killing witnesses, including six monks. Doody maintains his innocence. The accomplice is serving life in prison in a deal that spared him the death penalty. He has testified against Doody at all three trials.
