ON FOX 8 MORNING EDITION: Speaks hearing could wrap up; Church shooting suspect in court

Jurors hearing the case against Terry Speaks could start deliberations Friday.

Testimony and closing arguments are expected to wrap up either in the morning or early afternoon.

The Columbia area man accused of shooting and killing nine people in a downtown Charleston church on Wednesday night is now back in the Lowcountry after being arrested in North Carolina. He is scheduled for a bond hearing Friday afternoon.

The identity of the Waveland woman whose body was discovered in a roadside ditch Thursday morning has been released. The body of 23-year-old Shelby Luciano was found on Waveland Avenue near Spruce Street around 6:30 a.m.

Police say her death may have been the result of a tragic hit-and-run accident, but investigators are not ruling out other possibilities.
