"People are concrete on either side," the jury's foreman told the judge late Monday afternoon.
Ben Gilmore, the Occupy protestor whose watch was found in the rubble of the fire, faces seven felony counts including arson and attempted murder. The October 2011 blaze started in a building under construction in Fort Collins and spread to a condominium structure. The damage was estimated at $10 million.
The trial lasted for more than three weeks before jurors began deliberating last Tuesday afternoon. They took Friday off because of a scheduling conflict and returned at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
The judge instructed jurors to return Tuesday morning to continue deliberations.
"Each of you must decide the case for yourself," he told jurors. "You are judges - judges of the facts."
