A murder mystery returns to a McHenry County courtroom Monday.

Proscecutors say Mario Casciaro, 29, is responsible for the 2002 death of his former coworker, 17-year-old Brian Carrick. No one ever found a body, though.

Witnesses testified at Casciaro's first trial that Carrick owed the defendant drug money, and investigators said Casciaro told a friend to scare the victim into paying.

That friend testified he hit Carrick, killing him, and that Casciaro hid the body.

Casciaro's first trial ended last year with a hung jury. This time, prosecutors told the Chicago Tribune they streamlined the case and dropped an unlawful restraint charge.

If convicted, Casciaro could face up to 60 years in prison.
