 A jury will decide the fate of an Omaha teen accused of killing a man last year at Miller Park.

Prosecutors believe Jamar Milton was the triggerman who set-up the murder victim.

Investigators believe the 17-year-old shot and killed Jamymelle Ray, after arranging to purchase marijuana.

Shuntayvious Prime-Willis shot Charles fisher.

Fisher survived and is the prosecution's star witness.

Willis is serving a 30-year prison sentence.

A juvenile judge sentenced a 12-year-old to Boys Town for his role in the crime.

The jury has gone into recess for the day and has not come to a verdict in the case.

Milton is charged with first degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony after the murder of Ray in the summer of 2015.

The jury started deliberating Wednesday morning.

Milton's defense attorney says the jury had five days worth of evidence to look over so they decided to break for the day.

Milton's family members waited at the courthouse this morning but didn't want to speak on camera.

The jury is set to resume the case Thursday morning.
