Melton jury at impasse; still deliberating

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The jury in the Frank Melton trial has told the judge they are at an impasse, but Judge Dan Jordan told them to keep trying.

Melton was the former general manager of KLTV.

The jury began deliberations this morning and had been at it for almost five hours.

They deliberated just under two hours Wednesday evening.

Melton and his former police bodyguard are each charged with three felonies for leading a group of young men to use sticks and hammers to damage the home in 2006.
