No verdict after 4 days of deliberations in Hernandez trial
By The Associated Press
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) _ Jurors in the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez have completed a fourth day of deliberations with no verdict.
The twelve jurors have spent nearly 20 hours over four days considering whether to convict Hernandez of the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. Hernandez’s lawyer acknowledged the former NFL player was there when Lloyd was killed but says he didn’t do it.
Deliberations ended for the day at 1 p.m. Friday
Jurors are scheduled to return to court Monday. Deliberations typically last from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., although jurors may go later if they wish.
In addition to the murder charge, they must decide whether to convict him on charges of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
