Pictured: Craig Arno and Jessica Kisby as they appeared in court on May 9th, 2011. Both pleaded not guilty to murder, felony murder, carjacking and kidnapping charges.

Jurors in the trial of a southern New Jersey man accused in the fatal carjacking of an Atlantic City casino patron are re-listening to key testimony.

Craig Arno is charged with the murder of Martin Caballero of North Bergen in May 2010.

Arno's ex-girlfriend, Jessica Kisby, testified she and Arno carjacked Caballero and stole money using his ATM. She says Arno stabbed him to death and dumped his body in the woods before torching the man's vehicle.

Arno said he had nothing to do with the killing, but did set fire to Caballero's SUV.

Kisby pleaded guilty to murder and agreed to testify against Arno in return for being eligible for parole after 30 years.

The jury asked to re-hear the conflicting testimony from both about the kidnapping and killing.
