mod note: Please be mindful of the following posting parameters.

1) You may discuss information in the mainstream media but please steer away from the topic of race.

Threads or posts promoting or expressing intolerant views toward a particular social group (such as race, religion, gender and sexual orientation) are prohibited.

2) QT is the only one on trial and the only named suspect. Our terms of service address making random accusations against others who have not been designated as suspects.

The "victim friendly" rule extends to the family members of victims and suspects. Sleuthing family members, friends, and others who have not been designated as suspects is not allowed. Don't make random accusations, suggest their involvement, nor bash and attack them. Posting their personal information, including names, addresses, and background data -- even if it is public -- is not allowed. That does not mean, however, that statements made by family members and other third parties cannot come into discussion as the facts of the case are reported in the media.

So the judge has given the "allen charge" and we have a divided jury. He has sent them back. This is very bad news.

Better than an acquittal. He can be retried. And, he's in prison right now so he's not going anyway before his next trial for torturing yet another woman to death.

i am concerned about the jury situation and frame of mind at this point...I have never watched a trial were they went for that many hours each day without one day off They have to be so ready to go home and do something besides look at each other.

Such an instruction became known as an Allen charge and is given when, after deliberation, a jury reports that it is deadlocked and unable to decide on a verdict. Because it is used to dislodge jurors from entrenched positions, the Allen charge is sometimes referred to as the "dynamite charge" or the "hammer charge."

Jurors have been deliberating the verdict for almost 8.5 hours at this point. #JessicaChambers

From Mimi’s link, this is the actual Allen Charge

Members of the Jury:

I'm going to ask that you continue your deliberations in an effort to reach agreement upon a verdict and dispose of this case; and I have a few additional comments I would like for you to consider as you do so.

This is an important case. The trial has been expensive in time, effort, money and emotional strain to both the defense and the prosecution. If you should fail to agree upon a verdict, the case will be left open and may have to be tried again. Obviously, another trial would only serve to increase the cost to both sides, and there is no reason to believe that the case can be tried again by either side any better or more exhaustively than it has been tried before you.

Any future jury must be selected in the same manner and from the same source as you were chosen, and there is no reason to believe that the case could ever be submitted to twelve men and women more conscientious, more impartial, or more competent to decide it, or that more or clearer evidence could be produced.

If a substantial majority of your number are in favor of a conviction, those of you who disagree should reconsider whether your doubt is a reasonable one since it appears to make no effective impression upon the minds of the others. On the other hand, if a majority or even a lesser number of you are in favor of an acquittal, the rest of you should ask yourselves again, and most thoughtfully, whether you should accept the weight and sufficiency of evidence which fails to convince your fellow jurors beyond a reasonable doubt.

Remember at all times that no juror is expected to give up an honest belief he or she may have as to the weight or effect of the evidence; but, after full deliberation and consideration of the evidence in the case, it is your duty to agree upon a verdict if you can do so.

You must also remember that if the evidence in the case fails to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt the Defendant should have your unanimous verdict of Not Guilty.

You may be as leisurely in your deliberations as the occasion may require and should take all the time which you may feel is necessary.

I will ask now that you retire once again and continue your deliberations with these additional comments in mind to be applied, of course, in conjunction with all of the other instructions I have previously given to you."[4]

I don't know if this county can afford to retry this case if it's hung. Then again, can they really just let it go? Perhaps they'll let the other state/county have their go at QT and that other case and see what happens.

Yes she did. I have to believe that anyone giving testimony is carefully guarding themselves so as not to end up like JC. My feeling is that this town let JC down. Many knew that JC and Q were together that day and night, but it seems no one was forthcoming with that info. Drug dealing and gang ties tend to keep people from telling the truth for fear of revenge. I would be very curious to know his street name, which I'm sure he has.

Yes, indeed. "Snitches get Stitches" ...or worse. I imagine the "Baby Mama" who was revealed to be a CI for the PCSD narcotics officer who collected the car keys has long since departed the scene for parts unknown, just like Ali Alsanai. Most of these residents of Courtland will still be living there long after the cameras are gone. Sad to say, so will the drug dealers.

Send him up to Ont. Canada. I know I would convict him. Maybe there is just one hold out??

At least it's not an aquittal and thank goodness for that.

If the state does try this again, they really need to bring in a linguistic expert as well as spend more time on the severity of the injuries to JC's mouth, throat and larynx.

In addition, so many people are uanble to pay attention to much beyond a few snippets of anything they hear. So the first 8 witnesses or so were all about what JC said or what they thought they heard her say. That got stuck in some people's minds and they simply could not move on from that initial thought.

It's so ironic if JC had died at the scene without saying anything intelligible the jury might have been in full agreement on guilt. Her own desperate attempt to communicate is not letting her get justice for her murder.

I'll be honest. I did not see this coming. My prediction was wrong. Let's see how it plays out from here.. #JessicaChambers @LocalMemphis

My opinion on why jury struggling: State has cell data & texts that put Tellis with her. But jury hung up on "Eric". Just a guess from what I'm hearing. #JessicaChambers @LocalMemphis
