Jurors continue deliberations in William Sandeson's murder trial

Jurors are expected to continue deliberations Saturday in the trial of Halifax medical student William Sandeson, accused of killing a physics student during a drug deal.

The Crown has argued Sandeson planned the murder to alleviate his debts.

He is charged with the first-degree murder of 22-year-old Taylor Samson, whose body has never been found.

Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Josh Arnold gave jurors his final instructions before deliberations began at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

The jury of six men and six women have deliberated for roughly 11 hours so far.

They'll return to court at 9:15 a.m. Saturday to continue discussions.
