Jury deliberates in murder of Bucks County musician Danny DeGennaro

Monday, May 20, 2013

The fate of one of the men accused in the murder of a popular Bucks County musician is now in the hands of a jury.

The jurors are considering the case against 20-year-old Jermaine Jackson.

Prosecutors say Jackson, along with four other men, conspired to rob Danny DeGennaro at his Levittown, Pa. home back in December 2011.

But a fight broke out and DeGennaro was shot and killed.

Prosecutors say Jackson was not the one who pulled the trigger.

But they believe he did plan the robbery.

DeGennaro was a popular local musician who played with Bo Diddley and Billy Squier, among others.

He was also known for holding small concerts to raise money for local causes.

A Facebook page entitled "Levittown Vows Justice" was created in DeGennaro's honor.
