Deliberations begin in Darrell Fuller murder trial

MINEOLA - Jurors have begun deliberations in the Darrell Fuller murder trial.

Fuller is accused of gunning down Nassau Officer Arthur Lopez following a traffic stop in 2012.

He then allegedly killed Brooklyn father Raymond Facey during a carjacking.

Fuller is charged with first-degree murder. Jurors today requested clarification of the differences between first- and second-degree murder.

 Jurors got the case at around 1:30 p.m. and deliberated until 4:50 p.m. They have been sent home for the weekend.

Closing arguments were delivered earlier in the day. Prosecutors said there is overwhelming evidence that Fuller shot and killed Lopez and Facey. The defense stated that the prosecution did not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
