PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jurors return Tuesday to resume deliberations in the trial of the remaining defendant in the slayings of five people and an unborn baby at a western Pennsylvania cookout almost four years ago. Closing arguments were delivered Monday in the Allegheny County trial of 33-year-old Cheron Shelton, who is charged with first- and third-degree murder in the March 2016 slayings in Pittsburgh's Wilkinsburg suburb. Charges were dismissed earlier against Shelton's co-defendant, 31-year-old Robert Thomas. Prosecutors have said they will seek capital punishment in the event of a first-degree murder conviction. Defense attorneys have cited a lack of physical evidence.
