WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Jurors resume deliberations Wednesday in the case of a man charged in the murder of a southeastern Pennsylvania barbershop owner eight years ago.

Prosecutors in Chester County are seeking the death penalty against 37-year-old Duron Peoples in the October 2006 murder of 33-year-old 33-Jonas Suber.

The Daily Local News of West Chester (https://bit.ly/1pq8smj ) reports that jurors briefly began deliberations Tuesday.

Authorities allege that Peoples ordered the shooting after a long-running feud that began when Suber began dating his former girlfriend.

Defense attorney Laurence Harmelin attacked the credibility of prosecution witnesses, calling them “thieves, murderers, PCP users, and career criminals.”

Three other men are serving life terms in the case. Peoples is already serving a 21-to-42 year sentence in another shooting that authorities said was part of the feud .
