YOUNGSTOWN — Jurors in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court have signaled that they have reached a verdict in the James Ferrara case.
Ferrara, 64, is charged with killing Benjamin Marsh. 33; his wife Marilyn, 32; and their daughter Heather, 4, inside their South Turner Toad home in Canfield Township on Dec. 13, 1974.
Ferrara, who is serving a prison sentence for a double homicide in the Columbus area in 1983, was indicted in June after fingerprint evidence collected at the crime scene was matched to him in 2009.
Jurors were seated before Judge R. Scott Krichbaum Monday and began deliberations late Wednesday afternoon for about 45 minutes before resuming today at 8:30 a.m.
