Slain Cop Jury Wants to Rehear Testimony

Jury will resume deliberations on Monday

The jury deliberating charges against accused cop killer Lee Woods has requested to hear a readback of testimony by eight witnesses.

This process took most of the day Friday and the jury will resume deliberations on Monday morning.

The jurors had request to see photos, videos and other exhibits that comprise most of the evidence in the case.

Woods is charged with murder in the shooting death of NYPD Officer Russel Timoshenko on July 9, 2007. He was in a stolen car with two others that night. Officers Timoshenko and his partner, now Detective Herman Yan, started what should have been a routine car stop when they were confronted by a fusillade of gunfire.  Officer Timoishenko did not survive.  Officer Yan was saved by a bullet resistant vest.

Dexter Bostic was convicted in December 2008 of murder and sentenced to life without possibility of parole.  Robert Ellis was convicted only of weapons possession.  He got 15 years. 

Woods' case ended in mistrial.  His second jury began to deliberate Thursday afternoon.
