Jury breaks from deliberations in Tran capital murder trial

UPDATE -- after deliberating for most of the afternoon, the jury in the Brandon Tran trial on capital murder has gone home for the day. They will resume in the morning.

JEFFERSON COUNTY - The jury has begun deliberating in the capital murder trial of a man charged with robbing and killing a Port Arthur nightclub owner in September 2012.

KFDM's Jennifer Gordy is covering the trial of Brandon Tran. Stay with KFDM and kfdm.com for updates.

The State rested its case Monday after calling its final witness. The defense didn't put any witnesses on the stand.

A Port Arthur Police officer was the final witness for the prosecution.  Marcelo Molfino took Tran's statement shortly after his arrest. Tran said in his sworn statement that he went to Nikki's lounge September 1, 2012 to rob the owner, Hieu Huynh, 62. In the statement, Huynh said he demanded money from the owner, chased him and shot him, then took his gold chain and wallet.

The District Attorney's Office isn't seeking the death penalty. If convicted, Tran would receive an automatic life sentence.
