Jury "at a standstill" in ex-BP engineer's trial
 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A deadlocked jury will return for a third day of deliberations in the case against a former BP engineer charged with deleting text messages to obstruct a probe of the company's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Jurors deliberated for more than eight hours over two days before telling U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval Jr. late Tuesday that they were "at a standstill" and having trouble reaching a verdict in the case against 52-year-old Kurt Mix, of Katy, Texas.

About an hour after Duval instructed them to continue their deliberations, jurors asked to adjourn for the night and return Wednesday morning.

Mix is charged with two counts of obstruction of justice. He didn't testify at his two-week trial.
