JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Deliberations continued for a second day Tuesday in a 2009 double murder trial.

After deliberating nearly 10 hours Monday - from 2pm to midnight -  jurors were unable to reach a verdict in the double murder trial of 24-year-old Ryan Sheckles.

The jury was then sequestered to a hotel for fear of safety, after a family member of Sheckles  took the stand allegedly made gang signs with his hands and appeared threatening during testimony.

The jury reconvened at 9 a.m. Tuesday and requested to review a tape of testimony from one witness. 

That process took about three hours, and the jury broke for lunch around 12:30. They were set to continue deliberations Tuesday afternoon.

Sheckles, 24, is accused of shooting and killing Larry Morrow and his ex-wife, Shannon Howard Morrow, in August of 2009 in downtown Jeffersonville during a drug deal.

We're continuing to follow this case and we'll bring you updates as soon as they're available.
