After second day, jury in Rachel Hoffman case still has no verdict

TALLAHASSEE — A jury weighing the case against one of the men accused of killing police informant Rachel Hoffman remains deadlocked after its second day of deliberations Wednesday.

The 12-member panel heard testimony for a week against Deneilo Bradshaw, 24, who along with his brother-in-law, Andrea Green, is accused of robbing the Clearwater native and shooting her five times in a botched drug-sting arranged by the Tallahassee Police Department in May 2008.

Bradshaw faces charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery. He could receive the death penalty if convicted as charged. But the jurors appear confused about the legal instructions and how much to fault Bradshaw, who defense attorneys suggest played a small role in the crime.

The jury had deliberated for a combined 21 hours when they called it a night Wednesday.
