Jurors in trial of XXXTentacion's accused killers deliberating for third day

Jurors in the trial of three men accused of murdering rising rap star XXXTentacion outside a motorcycle dealership nearly five years ago are deliberating for a third day.

The panel of 12 deliberated for about five hours yesterday after considering the evidence for about an hour late Wednesday.

They have asked no questions of Circuit Judge Michael Usan about the case.

Accused shooter Michael Boatwright, alleged ringleader and getaway driver Dedrick Williams, and accused second gunman Trayvon Newsome, are all charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. 

They all face mandatory life sentences if convicted. Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.

A fourth man, 26-year-old Robert Allen, pleaded guilty last year to second-degree murder and testified against his former friends.
