Jurors deliberating in Cortnee Brantley case

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The Cortnee Brantley trial is now in the hands of a jury.  

They'll decide if Brantley should be convicted of failing to report a crime as a witness.  

Brantley was driving the car Dontae Morris was in when police say he shot and killed Tampa officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab.

She's accused of not telling the officers that her boyfriend, Morris, was a felon with a gun. During her first trial in July, jurors were split on the decision and could not reach a verdict.

This time the case is being retried, with attorneys spending far less time to present the case. They broke for lunch with only closing arguments left and the jury got the case this afternoon.

They wrapped up for the day just before 5 Tuesday and will resume deliberations Wednesday morning.

Last time, it took jurors nearly eight hours to make a decision.  

When they have a decision, we'll bring it to you.
