NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A jury has deliberated for a second day without reaching a verdict in the trial of five current and former New Orleans police officers charged in the death of a man who was fatally shot and his body burned after Hurricane Katrina.
Jurors are expected to resume deliberations Thursday. They deliberated about 17 hours Tuesday and Wednesday.
A former officer, David Warren, is charged with shooting Henry Glover, 31, without justification outside a strip mall on Sept. 2, 2005.
Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann and Officer Gregory McRae are charged with burning Glover's body and beating men who brought the dying man to a makeshift police compound in search of help.
Lt. Travis McCabe and former Lt. Robert Italiano are charged with writing and submitting a false report about the shooting.
