(CENTREVILLE) – After a full day and a half of deliberations, the jury in the Andy Brown trial has still not come to a verdict.
The 12 member panel, made up of 9 women and 3 men, started deliberations at 12 PM Thursday and then came back to the St. Joseph County Courthouse at 8 AM Friday. At 5 PM, they broke for the weekend.
During the afternoon on Friday, the jury had a question that Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman had to answer. While he didn't read the question out loud, Stutesman did tell the jurors to review their jury instructions. Stutesman also went over some of those instructions for them again.
The jurors also asked what could and could not be considered as evidence as they go through their deliberations. Stutesman says evidence consists of what items have been introduced by either Prosecutor John McDonough or Defense Attorney Mike Hills, or by the witnesses who testified.
Brown is charged with First Degree Premeditated Murder and Felony Firearms in the October 2, 2013 shooting death of David Locey. Stutesman says the jury could also find Brown guilty of Second Degree Murder.
The jury will resume their deliberations Monday at 8 AM.
