CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Jurors are taking another look at some evidence as they deliberate in the murder trial of a man accused of killing his 3-year-old son because the boy hindered his relationship with a teenage girlfriend.
The panel asked to watch David Creato's interview with detectives and hear a conversation secretly recorded by the boy's mother. The request came after they deliberated for about four hours Wednesday, their first full day of deliberations.
Creato maintains his son, Brendan, wandered away from his Haddon Township home in October 2015. The boy's pajama-clad body was found hours later about a mile from the home.
During closing arguments, prosecutors told jurors Creato "had the motive and the opportunity and the means" to kill his son. But Creato's lawyer argued prosecutors didn't show Creato was guilty.
