Jury deliberating in teen's murder trial

Logan Davidson, 16, died after being punched at Canyon High School

SAN ANTONIO – Jurors were deliberating Monday in the trial of a Canyon High School student accused in the death of another student.

Logan Davidson, 16, died after he was punched and fell into a hallway locker at the school in November 2013.

The 16-year-old on trial testified that he punched Davidson after an incident in the classroom in which Davidson threw an eraser at him.

The judge has granted a defense request to have simple assault included in the jury charge, despite an appeal by the prosecution.

The jury was sent home Monday evening and will resume Tuesday at 9 a.m.
