Jurors are continuing to deliberate Thursday in the murder trial of a man accused of shooting his married lover to death and leaving her body in her SUV in Portland, Maine.
Twenty-one-year-old Anthony Pratt Jr. of New York is accused of murdering Margarita Fisenko Scott in 2012. Her husband, Cary Scott, said that he thought for months she had run off with Pratt until he found her body outside the Motel 6 on Riverside Street.
According to the Portland Press Herald, DNA from Pratt was not found on the murder weapon, but DNA from two other people, Christopher and Tunile Jennings, was.
Also, according to the Herald, evidence shows that Christopher Jennings was the last person to have sex with the victim.
Pratt's defense attorney said the alibis for the Jennings' were not fully investigated and that they should be considered suspects.
The Press Herald reports that the judge handed the case to the jury at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Deliberation took place for two and a half hours before jurors were sent home.
Pratt was arrested in 2013 and has been held without bail since then. He has pleaded not guilty to the murder.
