The jury at the trial of a Wexford town man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend's partner will recommence their deliberations on Thursday.
James Connors, aged 29, of Rosemount, Drinagh, has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Jason Ryan, aged 27, at Hollyville Heights on January 25, 2012.
The jury has spent 9 hours and 30 minutes considering their verdict. At the Central Criminal Court on Tuesday the jury foreman said another 30 minutes to one hour might be enough for them to find agreement.
The court is not sitting on Wednesday so Justice Margaret Heneghan asked them to return on Thursday.
