The jury began its discussions around 2 p.m. Wednesday, shortly after closing arguments were made in the case against Jahmell Crockam. They concluded nearly three hours later and will resume this morning.

Crockam allegedly shot Patrolman Christopher Matlosz three times while Matlosz was behind the wheel of his police cruiser on Jan. 14, 2011.

Prosecutors say Crockam knew he had outstanding arrest warrants and killed the officer to avoid going to prison. But Crockam’s lawyer has maintained there’s no reliable evidence linking his client to the killing.

Crockam could be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.
