HYDEN, Ky. (AP) — A Leslie County jury is getting the murder trial of five men in what police said was a staged ATV accident.

According to WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/ZPEhtt ) in Hazard, testimony concluded Wednesday after a suspect in the death of Norman Adams took the stand in his own defense.

Harold Pennington told the jury in Hyden that he didn't hurt Adams and that another suspect told him what to say to police, threatening to kill him and his family if he did not.

Investigators said Adams was fatally beaten in October 2010.

The others on trial are Millard Miniard, Ricky Turner, Lonnie Callahan and Lonnie Ray Callahan.

Closing arguments were scheduled for Thursday morning.
