PHILADELPHIA: No Verdict In Second Day Of Jury Deliberations On Gay-Bashing Case

Via the Philly Voice:

The jury in the assault trial of Kathryn Knott on Friday will deliberate a third day as it works to reach a verdict. Judge Roxanne Covington honored the jury’s request for dismissal around 4:20 p.m. Thursday, the second full day of deliberations following four days of testimony.

Not long after beginning its second day of deliberations, the Court of Common Pleas jury – comprising eight women and four men – let the judge know they had more questions. The jury requested police statements given by Knott and Elizabeth Foley, a defense witness who was among Knott’s group on the night of the incident.

Yesterday a 19 year-old Emory University student who claims to be Knott’s gay cousin wrote an impassioned Facebook post in which he says that Knott is innocent and has always treated him kindly.
