Jury Gets Fatal A.C. Casino Carjack Case

After listening to gruesome testimony and intense closing arguments, the jury is now deliberating in the trial of Craig Arno. Arno is accused of carjacking and murdering Martin Caballero after he left the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in May 2010.

The case of a man accused in the fatal carjacking of an Atlantic City casino patron now rests with a jury.

The panel will start weighing the evidence in the case against Craig Arno. He's charged with murdering Martin Caballero of North Bergen in May 2010.

Prosecutors say Arno and his then-girlfriend, Jessica Kisby, followed the man into the garage of the Trump Taj Mahal, carjacked him and took him to a rural area about 20 minutes away where they stabbed him to death, then used his ATM card to withdraw money from a bank.

Kisby pleaded guilty to murder in February and agreed to testify against Arno, who maintains he had nothing to do with the killing. He does, however, acknowledge he set fire to Caballero's SUV.

During closing arguments Thursday, prosecutors called Arno and Kisby "evil pinballs."
