Jurors deliberate death penalty case in Clay City murder trial

Jurors have begun deliberating the fate of a man charged with killing a small-town Kentucky police chief.  Closing arguments in the murder trial of Jamie Barnett wrapped up Tuesday afternoon.

Barnett faces the death penalty if convicted in the death of Clay City Police Chief Randy Lacy.  Lacy was killed instantly after being shot in the head.

The trial began Thursday in a nearby county, where it was moved because of publicity.  The judge has said the jury would be sequestered from this point forward.
