PHOENIX -- A jury is scheduled to resume deliberations in the case of a man charged in the 1991 killings of nine people at a suburban Phoenix Buddhist temple.

A juror was excused Oct. 2 and the panel resumed deliberations the next day with an alternate before taking a long break that ended Monday.

The original panel started deliberating on Sept. 24. The trial of 39-year-old Johnathan A. Doody began Aug. 12.

Doody was 17 when authorities said he participated in the gunning down of six monks, a nun and two helpers during a robbery.

He was convicted in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison.

Doody is being re-tried after a federal appeals court overturned his conviction in 2011, noting he wasn't properly read his rights.
