Still No Verdict in Aaron Hernandez Trial

Deliberations are scheduled to resume Thursday morning

The jury in the double-murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez finished its fourth day of deliberations Wednesday without reaching a verdict.

Jurors have now spent about 26 hours deliberating since Friday. Deliberations are expected to resume on Thursday morning.

The former New England Patriots tight end is accused of shooting two men in 2012 after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on him at a Boston nightclub.

Hernandez's lawyers say a former Hernandez friend shot the men over a drug deal. That friend was the government's star witness and alleges Hernandez later shot him in the face to try to silence him. Hernandez faces a witness intimidation charge in that shooting.

The 27-year-old Hernandez is already serving a life sentence in the 2013 killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.
