JURY STILL OUT IN JACKO CASE

The jury's still out...

The 12 jurors in Michael Jackson‘s child abuse trial are to deliberate for a fifth day today (June 10) as they try to reach a verdict in the case.

The group were in discussion for less than four hours on Thursday as some jury members had family commitments.

The embattled star faces 10 charges, including allegedly molesting a 13-year-old boy two years ago.

The singer, who denies all the charges, faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted on all counts.

Other charges Michael Jackson faces include giving the boy alcohol and conspiracy to kidnap him and his family.

Michael Jackson returned briefly to hospital on Wednesday (June 8) for a scheduled follow-up to resolve back pain which his spokeswoman said was made worse by stress.

The star has suffered health problems throughout the trial, on some instances walking with a stick to court.
