The jury will continue deliberations today in the trial of Derrick Feidler, the man accused of fatally shooting 38-year-old Jose Arenas Jr. in 2019.
The Erie County District Attorney’s Office is asserting that Feidler committed first-degree murder.
Feidler is accused of going into his home in the 1400 block of West 35th Street to retrieve a rifle before reportedly shooting Arenas in the chest.
In February 2020, Judge Brabender allowed Feidler to be released from Erie County Prison after posting bail.
Feidler is claiming self-defense.
