By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Jurors considering a murder charge against a white South Carolina former police officer who shot and killed a fleeing black motorist last year told a judge for a second time on Friday they were unable to reach a verdict. Jurors were deliberating for a third day in the case against ex-North Charleston patrolman Michael Slager, 35. "I cannot in good conscience consider a guilty verdict," that juror told state Judge Clifton Newman in a note, adding, "at the same time, my heart does not want to tell the Scott family that the man who killed their son, brother and father is innocent." The judge did not immediately say how he would proceed.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, who promised before the election to investigate Democrat Hillary Clinton for years, says he will wait until President-elect Donald Trump takes office before "poking around" the businessman's financial affairs and possible conflicts of interest.
