Tumblin Deliberations Scheduled for Today

FT. PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A jury could decide the fate on Monday of a man accused of murder after two earlier cases against him ended in mistrial.

Jury deliberations are expected to start for Alwin Tumblin.

Tumblin is accused of killing Jimmy Johns, the owner of a Ft. Pierce auto repair shop, during an armed robbery in 2004.

The prosecution claims the murder was premeditated but the defense argues the evidence is based on the testimony of an unreliable source, his alleged accomplice in the crime Anthony Mayes.

This is Tumblin's third trial for this crime.

The first ended in a mistrial due to mishandled evidence.

He was convicted in the second trial, but that was thrown out, as well, because improper evidence was introduced.
