Third day of deliberations in trial of man charged in loud music killing

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jurors have resumed deciding the fate of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music.

The 12 jurors in the trial of Michael Dunn resumed work Friday, their third day of deliberations. Dunn is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012.

Dunn claims he shot the Marietta, Ga., teen in self-defense. But prosecutors told jurors Dunn shot the teen because he felt disrespected by Davis during an argument over loud music.

Judge Russell Healey says spectators and lawyers will no longer be able to wait in the courtroom for a verdict since there was concern that jurors could hear muffled sounds coming from the courtroom.
