FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — The jury deciding whether to find former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez guilty of murder has completed its fifth day of deliberations with no verdict.
Jurors have spent more than 27 hours deliberating since last week. They are due to resume deliberations Tuesday morning.
Jurors must reach a unanimous verdict.
Among the observers in court Monday was Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins. Hernandez mouthed to her: “I love you.”
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the June 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins’ sister, Shaneah. Shaneah Jenkins was also in court Monday, sitting with Lloyd’s family.
Hernandez’s lawyer acknowledged Hernandez witnessed Lloyd’s killing but said he didn’t kill him.
