APPLETON, Wis. (AP) —Jurors will begin deliberating tomorrow in the fraud trial against the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay. Two brothers, Troy and Todd Merryfield, sued the diocese in 2008, alleging it committed fraud by repeatedly transferring priest John Feeney without telling parishioners about Feeney's history of abuse. Feeney was convicted in 2004 for the sexual assaults of the Merryfields; he has since been released.

All were expected to be treated and released from a hospital. Police say they don't have a motive yet for the shooting.
