Casey Adam Jones’ trial started Tuesday in Fort Payne. DeKalb County deputies arrested him back in 2015 on a capital murder charge in connection to Kenneth Shaw’s death. 


Shaw’s body was found outside his Henagar home in November 2015.  The 48-year-old had been shot to death.

Wednesday afternoon the jury heard closing arguments. The jury broke for the evening without a decision and resumed deliberations Thursday morning.

The jury handed down a verdict just before 2 p.m. Thursday. A sentencing date is set for May 21. Jones is expected to be sentenced to life without parole.
