    Office of Northwestern District Attorney

    The jury in the trial of a Massachusetts man charged with killing a 95-year-old man and his 77-year-old wife during a home invasion has started deliberating.

    The Recorder reports that the Franklin Superior Court jury weighing the fate of 25-year-old Joshua Hart began deliberations Thursday.

    Hart is charged in the October 2016 killing of 95-year-old Thomas Harty in his Orange home. Hart's wife, Joanna Fisher, was severely injured and died several weeks later.

    Hart, of Athol, faces two counts of murder and several other offenses. He has pleaded not guilty.
