Mehserle trial jurors to resume case Tuesday

July 5, 2010 8:03:52 PM PDT
The jury in the BART shooting trial had the day off Monday as part of the extended 4th of July holiday weekend.

Jurors got the case Friday afternoon and deliberated for about 2.5 hours before the weekend recess. They will return Tuesday morning to decide the fate of Johannes Mehserle.

The former BART officer is charged in the shooting death of unarmed passenger Oscar Grant at the Fruitvale station on New Year's Day of 2009.

The trial was moved to Los Angeles because of the publicity in the Bay Area.
