SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Shasta County jurors have now deliberated six days and there is still no verdict in the murder re-trial of Juan Venegas.

Venegas is accused of setting Burney gas station clerk David Wicks on fire, killing him back in 2016.

He could spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted.

Deliberations had to restart Monday after a second juror was let go for talking about the case outside the courtroom.
