No verdict yet in officer’s trial


CHARLOTTE (AP) — A third day of deliberations is scheduled in the trial of a white Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer accused in the shooting death of an unarmed black man nearly two years ago.

The racially diverse jury of eight women and four men is scheduled to return today at 9:30 a.m. to start its second full day of deliberations in the trial of Officer Randall Kerrick. The jury began deliberating Tuesday afternoon.

Kerrick is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the death of Jonathan Ferrell.

Jurors asked Judge Richard C. Ervin on Wednesday to provide them with eight items, among them the dashcam video showing the moments leading to the shooting death of Ferrell and the still shots of the video. Also among the material requested were the recorded interviews of three officers.
