LOCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) - Jury deliberations have begun in the murder trial of a Florida man charged with killing two members of a western New York motorcycle club last year.

A Niagara County jury deliberated for less than an hour Wednesday in the case of 36-year-old Andre Jenkins of Deland, Florida, before being sent home by the judge.

Deliberations resume Thursday.

Authorities say Jenkins fatally shot 31-year-old Daniel Szymanski (ZIH’-man-skee) of Getzville and 38-year-old of Paul Maue (mow) of Buffalo as they sat inside a car parked outside the Kingsmen clubhouse in North Tonawanda last September.

Jenkins was arrested in Georgia two months after the slayings.

Prosecutors say the two Kingsmen members were killed because of an internal dispute among the bikers.

Jenkins’ attorney says there is no physical evidence linking his client to the killings.
