Jury in Riverdale bomb plot trial begins deliberations

RIVERDALE - The jury in the Riverdale bomb plot trial has begun its deliberations.

Defense lawyers insist the four men, James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen, were set up and only got involved in the alleged scheme to blow up two Bronx synagogues and shoot down military aircraft because of the money involved.

Prosecutors have told jurors the men devised the plan on their own.
