YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Jurors will return Friday morning to continue deliberating in a Mahoning County murder case.
Anthony Hopkins is charged in the shooting death of James Brown in September of 2013. Brown’s was found lying in a pile of shattered glass on Truesdale Avenue.
Late Thursday morning, lawyers made their closing arguments, and the case went to the jury a little after 3 p.m.
On Tuesday, defense lawyers told jurors they would offer their own expert witnesses to prove someone else shot the victim. So far, two others accused in the case — Randall Miller and his wife Megan — have already been convicted for their roles in the crime.
Hopkins faces life behind bars if he is convicted.
