Fulmore Trial Deliberations Continue Into Weekend

  • Text size: + -

A judge has ordered jurors to a hotel after jurors deliberated until 10 o'clock Friday night in the trial of a Rochester woman whose murder conviction was overturned on appeal. The jury began deliberating Friday morning.

Carrie Fulmore was convicted of murder for the September 2005 shooting death of Myquesha Hazzard, 16. Prosecutors said Fulmore had a dispute with a neighbor, and encouraged her brother to fire multiple shots into the victim's home.

Nicholas Morgan is serving 25 years-to-life in prison. An appeals court later overturned Fulmore's conviction, saying prosecutors failed to prove she acted with depraved indifference.

Fulmore turned down an offer to plead guilty to manslaughter in exchange for a 15-to-20-year prison sentence.

Deliberations resume 9 a.m. Saturday morning.
