VERDICT WATCH: Jury Resumes Deliberations in War Machine Attempted Murder Trial

The jury is continuing their deliberations in the trial against War Machine, the mixed martial arts fighter formerly known as Jonathan Koppenhaver, who is facing 34 charges including attempted murder and sexual assault for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend, former adult film star Christine Mackinday (also known as Christy Mack), and another man, Corey Thomas, who was in bed with her at the time.

Both sides gave their closing arguments on Thursday. The prosecution methodically went through the long list of charges, reminding the jury of testimony that supported each one. The defense conceded several of the battery charges, virtually assuring that War Machine will serve at least some jail time. However, defense attorney Jay Leiderman argued that the prosecution overcharged in this case, and that War Machine is not guilty of sexual assault, attempted murder, or several of the other counts he’s facing.

The jury began deliberating on Friday, but they failed to reach a verdict yet. When they do reach a decision,  LawNewz.com and the LawNewz Network will bring you the verdict live as it’s announced. When it happens, you’ll be able to see it in the player above.
