Deliberations begin in Keith Luke murder trial

Posted: Updated:

(MyFoxBoston.com) – Deliberations began Wednesday in the trial against alleged murderer and self-proclaimed white supremacist Keith Luke.

The 26-year-old's attorneys claim Luke suffers from mental illness and should not be held criminally responsible for his actions.

Prosecutors allege he only suffers from a severe personality disorder and his motives to kill all non-whites was an intentional action. During closing statements, prosecutors claimed Luke was calm, deliberate, and planned in his alleged attack on Jan. 21, 2009. Two people were killed and a third was critically wounded.

The jury will continue to deliberate Thursday. Luke faces life in prison if he is found guilty.
