MIAMI (AP) - A jury has begun deliberations in the trial of a Florida man accused of the fatal 2007 shooting of Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor during a botched burglary.
Jurors got the case late Wednesday afternoon after hearing closing arguments in the case of 23-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. He faces a possible life sentence if convicted of murder in Taylor's killing.
A prosecutor told jurors to rely on Rivera's videotaped confession to police. Rivera testified in his own defense that he didn't shoot Taylor and stayed outside in a car while others went into the Pro Bowl player's house.
Four other young men from the Fort Myers area were charged. One pleaded guilty and three face trial later.
