No decision in Cessena deliberations

(Jury still deliberating)…Deliberations began Friday.

The Cessena trial was turned over to the Jury after the Prosecution and Defense rested their arguments. Jesus Cessena is on trial for the August 2012 murder of Rey Montano Jr. Last week Cessena testified on his own behalf. He admitted to stabbing Montano, but said it was in self-defense. He said during the confrontation Montano was the first to pull out a knife. Cessena testified he became scared, pulled his own knife and stabbed the victim. The Jury deliberated all day Friday, with no decision. They resumed deliberations Monday.
