    Jurors have concluded a second day of deliberations in the Chandra Levy murder trial without reaching a verdict.

    Jurors have deliberated for more than 11 hours over two days and will return to the courthouse on Friday, the Associated Press reported. They worked through the day Thursday without sending out a note or asking a question.

    Ingmar Guandique is charged with killing Levy a decade ago while she was exercising in Rock Creek Park.

    Jurors spent more than five hours weighing evidence yesterday. At one point, they sent a note to the judge, asking for a defense exhibit -- it was a picture of Guandique taken by his girlfriend. It shows the defendant in Rock Creek Park at around the time Levy went missing.

    Deliberations began about a half hour late this morning because of delays at security caused by a lot of people waiting to get in the courthouse, NBCWashington's Pat Collins reported.

    Guandique faces two counts of felony murder, but jurors can convict Guandique on the lesser charge of second degree murder.
