MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A jury is set to resume deliberations in the case of a Wisconsin man accused of starving and torturing his teenage daughter.
The jury began deliberations Thursday afternoon. They worked for about nine hours into Friday morning when they sent a message to Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese that they couldn't agree on a verdict. The judge ordered them to continue deliberations. A half-hour later jurors asked Genovese to let them go home. The judge ordered them to return to the courthouse at 10 a.m. CDT Friday to resume their work.
Prosecutors have charged the Madison man with a half-dozen child abuse-related charges. The Associated Press isn't naming him to avoid identifying the girl, who has alleged her stepbrother sexually assaulted her.19340232
