Ken Harris jury has questions about guns, but no answers

Second day of deliberations proceeds without a verdict

October 04, 2010|By Nick Madigan, The Baltimore Sun

The jury in the trial of three men accused of the murder of Kenneth N. Harris had two questions Monday — neither of which the judge answered.

In the first, jurors wondered how many guns had been used in the hold-up of the New Haven Lounge, to which retired Baltimore Circuit Judge David Ross responded that the jury should study the evidence at its disposal. The second question was whether Jerome Williams, the youngest of the defendants, was holding a gun during the crime. The judge's answer was the same.

The jurors' questions came shortly before they wrapped up their second day of deliberations, which they began on Friday afternoon. The defendants — Gary Collins and Charles McGaney, both 22, and Williams, 17 — face life in prison if convicted of the crimes. More than two dozen charges were filed against each man.
