(AP) AKRON, Ohio -- An Ohio jury is headed into the second full day of deliberations in the case of a teenager accused of participating in the slayings of three men lured by phony Craigslist job offers.

A 12-person Akron jury was scheduled to resume deliberations Monday morning after getting the case late Thursday.

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.
