Jury in police brutality trial adjourns without verdict

The jury reviewing allegations of brutality against Buffalo Police Officer Corey Krug ended a sixth day of deliberations Friday without a verdict.

Jurors in the civil rights case sent a note late Friday afternoon to U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara asking for testimony from the trial to be read back to them.

Arcara sent them home for the weekend and told them to return Monday to hear the testimony they requested.

The four-man, eight-woman panel is deciding if Krug, an 18-year veteran of the department, used excessive force in three separate incidents dating back nearly nine years.

Krug claims his use of force was justified.

If convicted, Krug, now on suspension, would face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
