The jury in the Neil Enwistle case went home today at 4:20 pm without reaching a verdict. While watching the live camera we were able to see the lovely Beth Karas come in and out of camera view for a few moments. The Judge instructs the jurors on not reading any articles, etc., as well as not deliberating until they return tomorrow and that's it. We hear "Court's in recess" and the gallery slowly exits the courtroom. Although the sound has been cut, we still see a few images in the courtroom of people leaving. And then the camera pans to the ceiling.
Verdict watch begins tomorrow at 9 am ET.
Update: 6:00 pm
A short note from one of our best trial watchers, ritanita:
Well, today we learned to keep an eye on the feed that shows the ceiling. Today it was the Fox station.
For those who didn't catch the action, the jury asked for the computer log-in records for January 20th.
A quick trip over to Joe Dwinell's blog at the Boston Herald site and I find out that the jury also asked for the Starbuck's receipt that Weinstein referred to in his closing statements.
I borrowed this from the Boston Herald to explain the significance of that receipt.
- Weinstein said Neil stopped for two “lattes” at Starbucks Jan. 20 and paid $7.04 intending to bring one home for his wife.
- Fabbri said the coffee run to Starbucks was the day before and the receipt will prove it.
