FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Jurors in Fargo deliberating the fate of a man accused of killing two children on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation have gone home for the weekend without reaching a verdict.
Twenty-year-old Valentino Bagola is charged with murder for the May 2011 slayings of 9-year-old Destiny Shaw-Dubois and her 6-year-old brother, Travis DuBois Junior in St. Michael.
Authorities allege that Bagola stabbed the children to death after he sexually assaulted the girl, and that he did so because he was angry at their father but couldn't find him.
The defense alleges that the children's father killed them. He denies the claim.
Jurors will resume deliberations Monday at 9 a.m.
