Authors describe the general mood at the Criminal Courts building in Cleveland as the jury deliberated today in a third floor room. They also report about several rumors floating around that the jury might be "deadlocked". Both Prosecution and Defense claim the jury will decide in their respective favor. Another unusual incident involving a mystery woman trying to enter the jury room during deliberations, despite security being around, is also described.
