BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Jurors are scheduled to begin a third day of deliberations in the trial of a Georgia man charged with killing his father and seven others inside their mobile home.
The jury of eight women and four men weighing murder charges against Guy Heinze Jr. was scheduled to return to the Glynn County courthouse at 9 a.m. Friday. They're trying to work through a deadlock after more than 17 hours spent deliberating over the past two days.
After dinner Thursday the jurors opted to return to the hotel rooms where they've been sequestered without TVs, computers or cellphones since Oct. 15. The jury recessed hours after telling the judge they were deadlocked 9-to-3.
Prosecutors say Heinze clubbed to death all eight victims on Aug. 29, 2009. Defense attorneys say he's innocent.
