How Hernandez deliberations stack up against other trials

Posted:

By The Associated Press

Jurors in the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez are set to resume deliberations for a seventh day on Wednesday, after having spent nearly 35 hours considering the evidence.

Here's how their deliberations stack up against some other notable murder trials:

___

O.J. SIMPSON

Jurors in the 8 ½-month-long murder trial in 1995 deliberated for less than four hours before finding the former football star, broadcaster and actor not guilty of killing his ex-wife and her friend.

___

CHARLES MANSON

Still one of the nation's most infamous killers, Manson was convicted in 1971 after jurors deliberated for 42 hours over nine days. He and three co-defendants were convicted of a series of killings in the Los Angeles area, including that of actress Sharon Tate.

___

PHIL SPECTOR

Deliberations lasted 30 hours before jurors found the music producer guilty of second-degree murder in 2009 in the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. His first trial, in 2007, resulted in a mistrial after the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict.

___

ROBERT BLAKE

Blake, an actor known for starring in the 1970s detective drama "Baretta," was acquitted in 2005 of killing his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, after jurors spent nine days deliberating.

___

LIZZIE BORDEN

Jurors deliberated for around an hour before acquitting Borden of the ax murders of her father and stepmother in a sensational trial in 1893. The killings happened in Fall River, Massachusetts, in a home directly across the street from the courthouse where the Hernandez trial has taken place.

___

MICHAEL SKAKEL

Kennedy cousin Skakel was convicted in 2002, following three days of deliberations, for the 1975 killing of his neighbor Martha Moxley when they were both 15. In 2013, Skakel was released from prison after a judge granted him a new trial. Prosecutors are appealing the decision, and no date for the new trial has been set.
