MIAMI (AP) - Deliberations resume in the murder trial of a former Boston FBI agent accused of setting up a mob hit on a gambling executive.
The dozen jurors began weighing the guilt or innocence of former
agent John Connolly on Tuesday, and will continue Wednesday.
They got the case after a seven-week trial and two days of closing
The 68-year-old Connolly faces life in prison if convicted in the 1982 killing of former Miami Jai-Alai president John Callahan.
According to prosecutors, he was fatally shot after Connolly tipped Boston mobsters that Callahan might implicate them in another murder.
Connolly is already serving a 10-year federal prison sentence
for a racketeering conviction stemming from his association with
Boston's Winter Hill Gang.
