UPDATED: Jury Members Set To Deliberate In Eisnor Trial

The fate of a Barss Corner man will be in the hands of a 12 member jury beginning Wednesday. Fifty year-old Wayne Eisnor is facing a first degree murder charge in the shooting death of his estranged wife more than three years ago in New Germany. Closing arguments were presented today in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Bridgewater. Crown Prosecutor Lloyd Tancock told court evidence against the accused - which include hand written notes laced with profanity  - indicate planning and deliberation in Tina Mae Eisnor's death. Defense lawyer Roger Burill argued Eisnor was not capable of planning a sophisticated murder plot. In total, 28 witnesses were called over the course of the two week trial. A first degree murder charge carries a penalty of a life sentence in prison.
