ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The jury in the trial of Rachelle Waterman says they can't agree unanimously on one count and has asked the court if they can move on to other counts.
The jury has decided on two of seven counts after five days of deliberation. If they took the counts in order, that would mean they have a decision on first- and second- degree murder.
The judge told them to proceed with the next count and continue deliberations.
Waterman is being tried for the second time in the murder of her mother in 2004. Two men pleaded guilty to Lauri Waterman’s murder, but one implicated that Rachelle Waterman was a conspirator in the plot.
Waterman's first trial ended with a deadlocked jury.
The defense attorney wants to hear the jury's decision so far to see if further deliberations are necessary.
The judge asked the jury to clarify which counts are deadlocked.
