The jury weighing the fate of a white Florida man accused of killing a black teen during an argument over loud music could make a decision Friday in the much-watched case.
The jury resumed deliberations at 9 a.m. ET Friday.
Things remained silent most of the day until shortly before 5 p.m., when Judge Russell Healey answered a question from the jury: Is it possible to not reach a verdict on one count and reach a verdict on other counts?
To which Healey responded: Yes.
What’s at stake is the fate of Michael Dunn, who says he acted in self-defense when he opened fire on four teenagers in an SUV in Jacksonville in November 2012.
Prosecutors contend it was an act of murder. Dunn has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. He also has been charged with three counts of attempted murder. If Dunn is found guilty, he faces up to life in prison.0
