A judge has ordered struggling jurors back to work at the murder trial of a woman accused of gunning down her retired police officer husband.
Jurors deliberating at the Queens trial of Barbara Sheehan said Wednesday they were hopelessly deadlocked. The judge instructed them to try again.
"I would ask you to go back and look at it," the judge said.
Sheehan has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and weapon possession.
She says she shot Raymond Sheehan in self-defense.
Sheehan says she suffered decades of physical and verbal abuse. She says he threatened to kill her, and he meant it.
Prosecutors say she was not abused. They say she was angry over her husband's infidelities.
Authorities said she fired 11 times, with two guns.
They say Raymond Sheehan was shaving in the bathroom at the time.
