CAMDEN, N. J. – Jurors have completed their deliberations for the day of the murder trial of a New Jersey man accused of killing his 3-year-old son, because the boy was a hindrance to his relationship with a teenage girlfriend.
Defense attorneys had told jurors that the plaintiffs failed to show 23-year-old David Creato was guilty. But the officers of justice, noted that the Creato was the only person with Brendan Creato the night the boy disappeared. They say that it would not much to smother a sleeping child.
Creato maintains Brendan walked away from his Haddon Township home in October 2015. His body was found hours later in a creek.
The panel got the case late Tuesday, shortly after the defence and prosecution lawyers after the end of the closing arguments. Jurors deliberated for about 20 minutes before the talks ended for the day. They will resume Wednesday.
