Jurors in murder trial to begin deliberations Thursday

Jury deliberations in the murder trial of Patrick Satterfield and Christopher Young begin Thursday.

Jurors heard closing arguments today in the case involving the December 2008 fatal shooting of Richard Boynton Jr., 78. Court officials said that jurors will return Thursday morning, hear about the law in the case and begin deliberations around 10:30 a.m.

Satterfield, 21, and Young, 25, face charges including murder in the Dec. 5, 2008, death of Boynton. Authorities say police were called to check on an open door at Boynton’s Burnside Drive home and found him fatally shot in the chest. Witnesses said the home appeared to have been burglarized.
