Jury in 3rd day of deliberations in DeMocker trial

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A jury in Prescott is in its third day of deliberating in a stockbroker's murder trial.

The Yavapai County Superior Court jury on Thursday resumed deliberations that began Tuesday after closing arguments concluded in the trial of Steven DeMocker.

Prosecutors contend DeMocker bludgeoned his ex-wife to death with a golf club because he was deep in debt, wanted the insurance payment and didn't want to pay alimony.

Prosecutors don't have any direct evidence linking DeMocker to the 2008 death of Carolyn Kennedy, but they said circumstantial evidence tied him to it.

Defense attorneys tried to deflect suspicion away from DeMocker and toward a man who lived in Kennedy's guesthouse but who has since died.

DeMocker's first trial ended in a mistrial in 2010 after his defense team quit.
