Jurors are now deliberating whether Thompson should be sentenced to death for Officer Miktarian's murder.

The jury will return for more deliberations Friday morning.  They are being sequestered during their deliberations.

The same jury convicted Thompson last week on all charges.
Officer Miktarian died July 13, 2008, after being shot four times in the head. He had pulled Thompson over for loud music in the driveway of Thompson's home just before 2 a.m.

Thompson and his attorneys never disputed he murdered Miktarian. The defense's strategy was to convince the jury there was no premeditation in the crime and, hopefully, spare Thompson's life when the sentence recommendation is decided.
