OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ A Johnson County jury has resumed deliberations in the case of a man charged with a Kansas girl's 1974 slaying.
Sixty-year-old John Henry Horton could be acquitted or found guilty of one of the following: first-degree murder, second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter.
Horton is on his second trial in the death of 13-year-old Lizabeth Wilson of Prairie Village.
Horton was found guilty of first-degree murder in 2004 for the girl's death. But the Kansas Supreme Court struck down the conviction, saying testimony by another alleged victim shouldn't have been allowed.
Prosecutors say Horton lured Lizabeth into Shawnee Mission East High School and molested her before she died from chloroform he allegedly used to subdue her.
