Jurors are continuing to deliberate whether to condemn gunman Brian Nichols to death row or sentence him to life behind bars for murder in the deaths of a judge and three other people in violence that began at a downtown Atlanta courthouse.

The jury reached no decision Tuesday on the fate of Nichols after spending much of the day considering the case.

The panel met again Wednesday morning and resumed deliberating after breaking for lunch.

Nichols, who turned 37 Wednesday, was found guilty last month of murder and dozens of other charges for killing the judge, a court reporter and a sheriff's deputy at the courthouse and a federal agent in an Atlanta neighborhood on March 11, 2005.

He could be sentenced to death or to life in prison with or without the possibility of parole.
