FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - A jury is set to resume deliberations in the case of a father and son from Acushnet charged with beating a man so severely he was left with permanent injuries.

The Fall River Superior Court jury will get back to work Thursday in the case against 55-year-old Christopher Adams and 28-year-old Jacob Adams.

The Taunton Daily Gazette (https://bit.ly/LT4FRH ) reports the pair was tried on charges including assault and battery resulting in serious bodily harm.

Prosecutors say father and son beat 27-year-old Gary Medeiros in May 2011. Medeiros had dated Christopher Adams’ daughter and the father and son thought he had stolen $1,900 from their home.

Medeiros requires round-the-clock care and is unable to walk or talk.

A defense lawyer said the Adamses used “reasonable force” to retrieve stolen money.
