Araujo Jury Told To Continue Deliberations

HAYWARD, Calif. -- The judge in the trial of three East Bay men accused of murdering transgender teenager Gwen Araujo ordered jurors to continue deliberating Wednesday even though they gave the court a note saying they haven't had any movement in reaching a verdict.

At a hearing in open court, the jury foreman told Alameda County Superior Court Judge Harry Sheppard that tape-recorded and videotaped testimony as well as additional jury instructions could help them in their efforts to reach a verdict in the case.

Jurors, who began deliberating the afternoon of June 3, have been deliberating for the equivalent of about seven full days.

Sheppard asked the jurors to give him a list of the recorded and videotaped testimony they want to hear and court officials will get it ready for them to hear first thing tomorrow morning.
