Ariz. convict awaits fate as jury deliberates

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Jury deliberations will resume Monday in the case of an Arizona convict who authorities say escaped from prison and killed an Oklahoma couple at a New Mexico highway rest area.

Jurors went home Thursday after deliberating for seven hours without a reaching a verdict.

John McCluskey is the last of three defendants to face federal charges in the August 2010 deaths of Gary and Linda Haas of Tecumseh, Okla.

Prosecutors say McCluskey and two other fugitives targeted the couple when their paths crossed at a rest stop near the New Mexico-Texas state line.

Their charred remains were left along with their burned-out travel trailer on a remote New Mexico ranch.
