Miami jury deliberates in Joe Cool boat slayings

MIAMI (AP) - A jury in Miami is deliberating a second day in the case of a man accused in the 2007 hijacking of the "Joe Cool" charter boat and killing of four people aboard.

The panel resumed discussions Thursday after getting the case on Wednesday. They're trying to decide the guilt or innocence of 21-year-old Guillermo Zarabozo, a former security guard. Zarabozo's first trial ended in a hung jury on most charges. Prosecutors say Zarabozo plotted with 37-year-old Kirby Archer to hijack the boat to Cuba and fatally shoot its captain, his wife and two crew members. But Zarabozo claims Archer committed the killings alone. Archer pleaded guilty and is serving a life prison sentence. Zarabozo also faces life if convicted.
