After a lunch break on Tuesday, jurors began deliberations in the case of Nathan Yager, the Paonia man charged with second degree murder in brutal slaying of his wife Melinda in January 2011. Yager has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, which means prosecutors must not only prove he's guilty of the crime, but also that he was sane at the time. The jury was also provided with a third option -- that the act was provoked and sudden, conducted in the heat of passion. The Yagers were in the midst of divorce proceedings when Nathan brutally slashed Melinda's neck, a fact that's never been disputed. Updates will be posted to the DCI Facebook page.
