The jury in the murder trial of Gary Lee Bullock was unable to engage in its fourth day of deliberations today. One juror was unable to attend, and so the rest of them were sent home this morning, meaning the verdict will have to wait at least until next week.
Bullock has been charged with the first degree murder of St. Bernard Catholic Parish priest Eric Freed on Jan 1, 2014, along with six other felonies including torture, carjacking, attempted arson and residential burglary. Since closing arguments wrapped up Tuesday morning, the jury has been involved in active deliberations, sending several notes to Judge John Feeney and asking questions of the attorneys in the case.
The jury is scheduled to reconvene Monday morning.
