No verdict yet in Corbin Whyte trial

There’s still no verdict in the trial of Corbin Whyte.

The first full day of jury deliberations began Thursday, with jurors requesting to hear transcripts of witness testimony.

Whyte is accused of fatally shooting Paul Garcia at the Maple Hill Apartments in Ithaca, Dec. 7., 2010. He faces charges of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and tampering with physical evidence.

It’s the third time Whyte is on trial. Two previous juries were unable to reach a verdict.

Jurors will resume deliberations at 9 a.m. Friday.
