— Jury deliberations began Friday in the trial of a man accused of killing his 89-year-old neighbor.

Prosecutors say Gregory Lee Jr. led four other suspects to Lois Cannady's house to steal her car. Authorities say she was shot to death while on the phone with 911.

Deliberations will resume after the holiday weekend.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Lee could receive a sentence of life in prison.
