LOS ANGELES – The jury in the Robert Blake (search) murder trial reviewed more witness testimony Tuesday in its effort to decide if the actor killed his wife.
It was the second time the jurors heard testimony read back. They adjourned at the end of their seventh full day of deliberations and were to resume Wednesday morning.
The latest request involved statements by a retired stuntman who claimed Blake solicited him to kill Bonny Lee Bakley (search). The jury wanted to hear about a criminal case he recently settled with a plea bargain.
The jury also wanted to review the statements of author Miles Corwin (search) about his book, "Homicide Special: A Year with the LAPD's Elite Detective Unit." Corwin was with detectives as they investigated the killing.
Blake, 71, is accused of killing Bakley, 44, who was shot to death in 2001 near a restaurant where the two had just dined. Prosecutors say he killed Bakley after allegedly failing to get others to do it for him.
