GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - Nearly six years after James Anthony Gray was arrested and charged with his parents death, a second trial is underway.

Wednesday marked day two of testimony in the Gray murder trial. Back in April of 2007, Vivan and James Gray were found shot to death inside their Scott county home. Police arrested their son, James Anthony Gray, shortly after and charged him with their deaths.

Gray's first trial ended in a hung jury last year after deliberating for ten hours.

On Wednesday, medical professionals along with other experts testified, answering questions from both the prosecution as well as the defense.

The jury was attentive, taking notes through each testimony.

Family and friends were present, some showing emotion during certain times.

"if I'm presented with two different scenarios by a prosecutor and a defense attorney, I may say well both of those scenarios are consistent," explains Dr. Greg Davis with the University of Kentucky Forensics and Pathology Department. "With the physical finds in this case, or depending on the case, I may say 'I'm sorry, your particular scenario it just couldn't happen that way. Every case is different and that's why we make sure we look at each one closely."

During Gray's last trial, the jury deliberated past midnight before returning to the judge to announce they were deadlocked.
