ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Deliberations in the trial of three people charged in a deadly salmonella outbreak will resume in the morning.

Court was suspended for the last three days after both sides presented closing arguments last week.

Jurors were given a 71-page verdict form to complete on Friday.

Six weeks of testimony and thousands of documents have some expecting a long deliberation.

"Although some folks complain about jury duty in the front end, once they get in that role, they take it incredibly seriously and they really try to do the right thing," said Defense Attorney Charlie Peeler.

Former Peanut Corporation of America owner, Stewart Parnell, and his brother, Michael Parnell, are charged with money and wire fraud, and introducing adulterated and misbranded food into interstate commerce. Former plant quality assurance manager, Mary Wilkerson, is facing two charges of obstruction of justice.
