UPDATE: Neil Pal was found guilty of first degree murder as an accomplice and first degree conspiracy in connection with the murder of Frank Bonacci last summer in Scranton.

Neil Pal takes the stand again Thursday morning is his own defense.
  The Lackawanna County man is on trial for the homicide of his friend Frank Bonnacci.
  The jury should begin deliberations today.
For the second day in a row -- suspect Neil Pal was back on the stand Thursday morning in his homicide trial here in Lackawanna County.
  The 23-year-old faced sharp pointed questions from first assistant district attorney Gene Talerico.
  On Wednesday -- Pal admitted being there when Frank Bonacci was murdered last summer -- but he says his friend Jason Dominick pulled the trigger.
  He said he took part in the cover-up -- but only because Dominick told him he was going to turn himself in.
  Talerico spent this morning challenging Pal's statements.
  Just like he did when he started his cross-examination Wednesday -- Gene Talerico was trying to make something clear to jurors...
  That Neil Pal specifically made choices last summer -- where he chose Jason Dominick over Frank Bonacci -- choices that left Bonacci at the bottom of a ravine for seven days before his body was found.
  Choices that left Bonacci's family -- and the community -- looking for answers.
  Closing arguments are also going to be taking place today.
  Jurors will then get instructions from the judge -- and as the judge told them yesterday -- he expects them to begin their deliberations at some point  Thursday afternoon.
 
Eyewitness News will have the very latest from the courthouse as this case goes to the jury later today.
