Deliberations resume in OH case hinging on blinks
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jurors began a third day of deliberations in a Cincinnati murder trial revolving around whether a dying, paralyzed man identified his shooter by blinking his eyes.
The jury in the trial of 35-year-old Ricardo Woods of Cincinnati began discussions Tuesday afternoon and didn't reach a verdict Wednesday. Jurors reconvened Thursday morning.
Woods is accused of shooting David Chandler in 2010. Chandler was left paralyzed from the neck down and unable to speak before his death about two weeks later.
Prosecutors told jurors that Chandler clearly identified Woods by blinking his eyes in a video interview with police. Officials said Chandler blinked three times for "yes" to identify Woods' photo.
The defense called Chandler's blinking unreliable due to his condition and medications.
