Conroy jury to resume deliberations Mon.

The jury in the Jeffrey Conroy murder trial will return tomorrow for its fourth day of deliberations after failing to reach a verdict Friday.

Deliberations went past 10 p.m. on Friday.

Over three days, the jury sent a total of 16 notes. One of the notes sent Friday asked the judge for the legal definition of "intent." The jury has also asked for Conroy's alleged written confession and the medical examiner's testimony to be read back.

Former high school athlete Jeffrey Conroy is accused of killing an Ecuadorian immigrant in a case that has led to a federal investigation of area hate crimes.

The jury is considering several charges, including second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter.

Conroy, 19, has pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter as hate crimes in the November 2008 death of Marcelo Lucero. He was implicated along with six other teens.

Officials say Conroy admitted to police that he was responsible for the stabbing. However, when he took the witness stand, he said he was taking the blame for a co-defendant.
