St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A St. Louis jury will resume deliberations of evidence and testimony presented this week in the first degree murder trial against a man accused of fatally beating his two year old son.
32 year old Aaron Duane Lucy is also charged with abuse of a child resulting in death, evidence tampering, and armed criminal action in connection to the December 2010 attack and death of his child, two year old Kyle.
Police arrived at the Lucy home in the 6900 block of Chippewa where they found both Lucy and the child naked and covered in blood. The little boy was unconscious on the floor of the home. Police say the child had severe head trauma but did not disclose what the weapon was used to attack the boy.
Closing arguments were heard yesterday in St. Louis Circuit Court and the jury began their review of the case until the Judge recessed the panel. Deliberations will resume at 9:00 a.m. this morning.
