HUSER TRIAL: No Verdict Yet, Jury To Return Thursday
Jurors in the murder re-trial of Vernon Huser have completed their second full day of deliberations and there is still no verdict.
The jury continued their work Wednesday morning wrapped up the day of deliberating shortly before 4:00 p.m. at the Polk County Courthouse.
Huser is accused of hiring a hitman in 2004 to kill his wife’s love, Lance Morningstar. He was convicted in his first trial but the Iowa Court of Appeals vacated the verdict saying the conviction was based on hearsay evidence presented during the trial.
The jury began deliberating Monday afternoon.
Channel 13’s Stephanie Moore has been following the trial from the beginning and will bring us the verdict when the jury reaches a decision.
