Deliberations start Monday in Kingman murder trial

KINGMAN, AZ (AP) - Jury deliberations are scheduled to begin Monday in the penalty phase of a trial for a man convicted of first-degree murder in the 2009 stabbing death of the 18-year-old daughter of his ex-girlfriend.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports that lawyers made closing arguments Thursday in the penalty phase of 54-year-old Darrell Bryant Ketchner's trial.

Jurors who have already convicted him of first-degree murder will decide whether Ketchner is sentenced to the death penalty or life in prison with no possibility of parole for fatally stabbing Ariel Allison and injuring her mother, Jennifer Allison, by shooting her in July 2009.

Jennifer Allison is the mother of three of Ketchner's children.
