What are your summer plans?
It always seems like such a long wait for the summer season to reach Newfoundland and Labrador, but it — at least, officially — begins this Wednesday.
HALIFAX — Jury deliberations in the murder trial of Halifax medical student William Sandeson are set to continue on Sunday.
Sandeson is accused of killing 22-year-old Taylor Samson, whose body has never been found, during a drug deal as part of a plan to alleviate his debt.
Jurors wrapped up their closed-door discussions on Saturday evening without reaching a verdict.
The 12-member jury has deliberated for nearly 20 hours since Thursday afternoon.
Justice Josh Arnold has laid out four possible verdicts in the case: Sandeson could be found guilty of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, manslaughter, or he could be found not guilty.
He told jury members their verdict must be unanimous, although they do not have to arrive at a conclusion in the same way.
The trial heard Samson went to Sandeson's apartment on Aug. 15, 2015, to sell him nine kilograms of marijuana for $40,000.
