Jurors on SOPRANOS actor Lillo Brancato Jr's murder trial will resume deliberating over the verdict on Friday (19Dec08), after the case reached a deadlock.
Brancato is charged with second-degree murder over the death off-duty police officer Daniel Enchautegui, who was shot dead by Brancato's friend Steven Armento.
The actor took to the stand on Monday (15Dec08) and the jury has since retired to consider their verdict on the case.
The case has not been without drama - Enchautegui's family have accused Brancato of smirking and his lawyer has been blasted by police for laughing during proceedings.
On Thursday (18Dec08), a mistrial was narrowly avoided after it was discovered a juror had been researching the case, which is not permitted.
At the end of proceedings on Thursday, jurors deadlocked 11-1 on the verdict and were sent home to resume their deliberations the following day.
