Day 2 of deliberations in Katrina killer cop case

A federal jury today enters a second day of deliberations in the retrial of a former New Orleans police officer charged with fatally shooting a man outside a strip mall in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath. 

Jurors deliberated for six hours Tuesday before adjourning until Wednesday morning. U.S. District Judge Lance Africk said they informed him that they hadn't ``moved forward'' in their last two hours of deliberations. 

Warren testified on Monday that he shot 31-year-old Henry Glover because he thought he saw a gun in his hand, but prosecutors said Glover wasn't armed and didn't pose a threat. 

Warren was convicted of manslaughter in 2010, but an appeals court ordered a new trial. The court ruled Warren should have been tried separately from other officers convicted in a cover-up that included burning Glover's body.
