Jury split in Dirksmeyer case

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 4:15 PM

Tipster says the Russellville Clarksville circuit jury in the Nona Dirksmeyer murder case reported it was hung, but the judge has ordered further deliberations. Jury reported it was split 6-2, with four undecided. They didn't say if the lean was for conviction or acquittal.

Deliberations began Thursday.

UPDATE: Our source was relying on a courtroom participant. But I note that the Russellville Courier account just put the count at 6-4-2, with no characterization of the stance of any of the votes.
