MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – The jury has spent a full day deliberating whether Michael Addison should die or spend the rest of his life in prison without reaching a decision.

The Superior Court jury was handed the case Monday afternoon and deliberated for about 45 minutes. Jurors returned on Tuesday, deliberated about six hours, and were sent home at 4 p.m. They will return Wednesday morning to resume deliberations.

Addison was convicted of capital murder last month for the fatal killing of Manchester police Officer Michael Briggs in October 2006. The jury must now decide whether Addison should receive life in prison without the possibility of parole or the death penalty.
