The jury in the Marion ‘Suge’ Knight trial has been ordered to return to court this week after they were “deadlocked” and failed to reach a verdict.
Knight is facing trial after he killed Terry Carter with his Ford Raptor truck by driving over him with his truck. Their vote was split 7-to-5 but they need 9 votes out of 12 for a verdict in the wrongful death case.
“We realize you have a very difficult split, but the consensus for everyone is we want to try to find an end to this case, if at all possible,” Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Thomas D. Long reportedly said. “We want to make sure that all efforts to reach a verdict, one way or the other, have been exhausted.” (Contributing Source: Rolling Stone)
