Jurors in the manslaughter trial of Kim Potter, the White former Minnesota police officer who says she mistook her firearm for her Taser and fatally shot Daunte Wright, concluded deliberations for the day Tuesday after earlier asking what they should do if they can't reach a verdict. They are expected to return Wednesday after deliberating just over nine hours Tuesday and more than five hours the day before.
"If the jury cannot reach consensus, what is the guidance around how long and what steps should be taken?" jurors wrote in one of two notes to the court Tuesday. Judge Regina Chu sent them back to work after rereading an earlier instruction that they "deliberate with a view toward reaching agreement if you can do so without violating your individual judgment."
