No verdict yet in Tucson car bomb killing case

PHOENIX -- Jurors have concluded deliberations for the day in the trial of a once-prominent Aspen, Colo., socialite charged in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband.

Jurors will resume deliberations Thursday.

Lawyers for Pamela Phillips argued their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano, and that she was a successful real estate broker.

Prosecutors described her as a gold digger who hired a former boyfriend to kill Triano to collect on a $2 million life insurance policy.

Trial began in February in Tucson. Phillips has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

The ex-boyfriend was convicted in 2010 and sentenced to two life terms.

Triano, a Tucson developer, died Nov. 1, 1996, when his car exploded outside a country club.
