OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The jury considering the fate of an ex-Oklahoma City police officer accused of sexually victimizing 13 women has ended its third day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

Judge Timothy Henderson announced late Wednesday that the jury had decided to end deliberations and return to a hotel, where they will remain sequestered. The group met for nearly 13 hours Wednesday and has put in about 34 hours of work since deliberations began.

They are set to resume at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Daniel Holtzclaw faces 36 counts of rape, sexual battery and other charges for allegedly victimizing women in the low-income neighborhoods he patrolled on the city’s northeast side.
