Jurors in the trial of a man charged with wounding two students outside a Colorado middle school have started their deliberations.
Closing arguments in the trial of Bruco (BROO'-so) Strong Eagle Eastwood were Friday in Golden. KUSA-TV in Denver reports (http://bit.ly/pEHPG5) jurors are set to resume deliberations Tuesday.
Eastwood has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to 15 charges, including attempted first-degree murder, in the shooting at Deer Creek Middle School last year. The school is just miles from Columbine High School, the site of one of the nation's deadliest school shootings.
Eastwood's lawyer had shown jurors portions of a rambling journal in which Eastwood referred to mutants or transformers taking over his body, but prosecutors said Eastwood knew the difference between right and wrong.
