Jury deliberations underway in NE Pa. slaying

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A jury has begun deliberating the fate of one of two men charged in the murder of a man whose body was found in a northeastern Pennsylvania ravine last summer.

Twenty-three-year-old Jason Dominick is on trial in Lackawanna County in the death of 24-year-old Frank Bonacci, whose body was found in in his SUV on a ledge above Roaring Brook in July.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune ( ) reports that expert witnesses for prosecution and defense gave conflicting opinions about where the fatal shot originated.

Dominick says 23-year-old Neil Pal shot the victim and he feared he would be next. Pal's trial is scheduled next month.

Prosecutors say Dominick shot Bonacci because the victim was dating his ex-girlfriend, and the two then launched the SUV down a 72-foot ravine.
