The jury in the Krystal McGlothlin trial was sent home for the night
this afternoon, after deliberating for the afternoon.

The jury has the choices of convicting the 29-year old McGlothlin of first degree murder, or the lesser offense of reckless homicide, or the jury could find her not guilty of any crime.

McGlothlin is accused of running down her ex-husband, Dennis McGlothin, on November 10th of 2006.

Her first conviction on murder charges was reversed by the Appellate Court and sent back to Tazewell County for a re-trial.

Tazewell County Judge Paul Gilfillan told the jury this afternoon that they were to return Wednesday morning to resume their deliberations, but that they would have Thanksgiving Day off if they had not reached a decision.

The Tazewell County Courthouse would then be re-opened on Friday for the deliberations to continue, if necessary.
