Jurors in the Robert Blake murder trial ended a week of deliberations on Friday (11MAR05) without reaching a verdict.

The panel has been ordered to continue considering the case today (14MAR05). The jury has been deliberating since 4 March (05), when closing arguments concluded.

On Wednesday (09MAR05), jurors reviewed testimony by three people at the Los Angeles-area restaurant where the former BARETTA star and his wife BONNY LEE BAKLEY had dinner before she was shot and killed in her husband's car in May 2001.

Blake is charged with murder, two counts of solicitation of murder, and a special circumstance of lying in wait. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.
