The jury mulling the fate of a Florida man accused of killing Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor will continue deliberating at 9 a.m. Friday.
Jurors began considering the case of Eric Rivera Jr. Wednesday evening and deliberated a short time. The 12-person panel came back Thursday to continue deliberations but ended the day at 4 p.m. without a verdict.
Rivera, 23, faces life in prison if convicted of Taylor's slaying in November 2007. Testimony showed Taylor was fatally shot during a failed burglary at his Miami-area home by a group of young men from Fort Myers.
"Everyone who participated in that crime is a principal -- helping each other to commit the crime, whether they're a lookout or a shooter or searching for the money is going to be equally guilty of first-degree murder," said prosecutor Reid Rubin.
Taylor was a Pro Bowl safety and star at the University of Miami.
