LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -- Jury watch continues in the murder retrial of Ryan Widmer. Four days after being charged, the jury is still looking at evidence.

Judge Bronson sent the jury back to its room just after 9am Tuesday.

Friday, the jury informed the court they could not reach a verdict, Judge Bronson did not accept the jury's impasse and gave them the allen charge, sending the them back to continue talks.

 It only took the jury 23 hours in the first trial to come back with a guilty verdict, but evidence of juror misconduct had that ruling thrown out, giving Widmer this new trial.
