Still no verdict in trial of architect Downes' accused killer

After a second day of deliberation, the jury remained undecided Wednesday in the trial of Higinio Soriano Salgado, the man accused of killing his boss, prominent San Diego architect Graham Downes.

The jury began deliberating Tuesday morning. San Diego Superior Court Judge Joan P. Weber instructed jurors that they will have until 4:30 p.m. each day of deliberations to either reach a verdict or inform the court they can't come to a unanimous decision.

The jury has been given room to consider whether Salgado is guilty of the charged count of first-degree murder or — if unanimously found to be not guilty of that charge — of the lesser included crimes of second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter.
