Jury To Resume Mulling Philly Murder Trial Monday

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Federal court jurors resume deliberations next week in the murder and racketeering trial of a convicted Philadelphia drug kingpin.

The panel deliberated all last week without reaching a verdict in the case of 38-year-old Kaboni Savage. They are to resume deliberations Monday.

Savage is charged in the deaths of 12 people, including six in the 2004 firebombing of the home of a man who planned to testify against him.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says the panel had only a few requests to review evidence last week, seeking a transcript of a man who testified that Savage ordered the firebombing.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. The trial began in February.

Savage, a former boxer, has denied any role in the attacks. He’s currently serving a 30-year drug-trafficking sentence.
