Jury Deliberates in Robert Blake Trial

Mar 08, 2005 | 9:43am EST

The jury in actor Robert Blake's murder trail spent three hours deliberating their verdict yesterday without reaching a final decision--but they made no request to review any testimonies or evidence.

Former Baretta TV star Blake has not been present in the Los Angeles court since his lawyer M. Gerald Schwartzbach wrapped up the trial with his closing speech on Friday.

Schwartzbach added Blake will not be present during jury deliberations "unless he has to".

The 71-year-old has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Bonny Lee Bakley, who was shot to death in a parked car outside the actor's favorite Italian restaurant in Studio City, California, in May 2001.
