The jury got the case around 5:15 Tuesday evening. As of midnight, the jury was still deliberating.

James Anthony Gray is charged with murder in the 2007 shooting deaths of his parents, James and Vivian Gray, in their Sadieville home.

Jurors spent part of Tuesday night taking a look at some key pieces of evidence.

They requested to watch three tapes and listen to one other, to try to help with deliberations.

The videos they watched were of the crime scene, of James and Vivian Gray's bodies, and of Anthony Gray's two taped confessions back in October 2007.

In the video, Gray confessed to shooting his father twice, and his mother once.

He went into detail about where his parents were when he says he shot them, but he is very vague about any other information from that day.

At one point in the interview, he said he didn't remember the shootings, but the evidence police laid out reminded Gray of his actions.

In one taped conversation, Gray starts to forget what happened that day, saying he wasn't sure if he did it or not.

On Monday, Gray testified that his confessions were just lies. He says he only confessed after being threatened by investigators.

The jury will have to decide if Gray is innocent, guilty of murder, or guilty of manslaughter.
