Jury deliberations begin in murder trial
Rochester, N.Y. -- Jury deliberations started Thursday in the murder trial of Clayton Whittemore.
Whittemore is accused of killing his girlfriend, Alex Kogut, in her College at Brockport dorm room back in 2012.
Jurors were in the jury room for about 10 minutes when they sent a note to the judge asking for a list of evidence and testimony.
They want to see the state police interrogation where Whittemore admitted to beating Kogut to death after a fight.
Whittemore's attorney said he snapped after years of child abuse and suffered extreme emotional disturbance. Prosecutors countered that with the testimony of a jail inmate he confided in. Jurors have also asked to hear a read back of that testimony.
Kogut's mom, Becky, tweeted pictures of her daughter during Thursday's court session. To read more, click here.
