KEENE, N.H. (AP) - A jury has not yet reached a verdict in the case of a man accused of setting a 1989 fire that killed a family of four Keene.
Prosecutors say David McLeod planned, then bragged about setting the fire and should finally be held accountable.
A lawyer for the 57-year-old McLeod says his cruel statements don't prove his guilt and no new evidence has emerged to link him to the fire.
McLeod is charged with four counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Carl and Lori Hina, their 4-month-old daughter, Lillian, and Carl Hina's 12-year-old daughter, Sara.
McLeod was an early suspect, but he was not arrested for more than two decades.
The jury started deliberating Tuesday afternoon and will continue at 9 a.m. Thursday.
