Jurors in Dallas teen murder trial to continue deliberations Saturday

Jurors in the murder trial of a Dallas teen will continue deliberations over the weekend.

The eight women and four men have not been able to reach a verdict in Antonio Cochran's capital murder trial. Zoe Hastings, 17, was found murdered in Oct. 2015.

Jurors posed several questions on Friday and asked for testimony to be re-read. They also asked to review Cochran's phone records.

After three days of deliberations, jurors also asked how long they have to deliberate before they're considered deadlocked. The jury received the case midday Wednesday.

Jury consultant Kacy Miller said it appears the jury is headed toward a mistrial.

"It's very likely the lack of fingerprints, forensic evidence found in the van, hair fibers anything of that nature,” Miller said. “In the day when we all watch CSI, Law and Order, NCIS, we expect to see the forensic proof and if the prosecutor has failed to meet the jury expectations that could be a hang up.”

The judge told the jury deliberations would resume at 9 a.m. Saturday.
