Jurors in the Etan Patz murder trial have been ordered back to work after passing a note indicating they are once again deadlocked. The note, which emerged around 12:20 p.m., read: "After serious, significant, and thorough negotiations we are unable to reach a unanimous decision." The judge then sat the jury back down, telling them to "apply common sense." It comes on the 14th day of deliberations to decide the fate of Pedro Hernandez, who confessed multiple times to killing the six-year-old boy back in 1979. Last week, the panel said they could not agree but the judge ordered them back to work. The jury had been deliberating since April 15th.
