CAMDEN, N.J. (WTXF/AP) - Jurors will be back, Thursday morning, reviewing evidence and then returning to deliberations in the murder trial of a South Jersey man accused of killing his 3-year-old son.
They may start by again listening to a conversation secretly recorded by the boy's mother that they'd asked to hear before they were sent home on Wednesday.
David 'DJ' Creato maintains his son, Brendan, wandered away from his Haddon Township home in October 2015. The boy's pajama-clad body was found hours later about a mile away.
Prosecutors say Creato had the motive to kill his son, but Creato's lawyer argued prosecutors didn't show he was guilty.
The jury got the case late Tuesday. FOX 29's Steve Keeley reports they hadn't even deliberated three hours. They've asked to rehear some earlier testimony and evidence because the trial was only held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
