The jury in the trial of Esperanza Castro had not reached verdict by late Friday afternoon and deliberations were set to continue Monday, a court official said.

Attorneys for both sides remain on call.

Castro is on trial for the March 22, 2006 murder of her husband Ramon Castro, who was beaten with a pipe and shot before his body was left in the bed of his truck, under a Highway 14 overpass on Sierra Highway.

The defense and prosecution gave their closing arguments Wednesday and the jury began deliberating.

Defense attorney Peter Korn told the jury that the prosecution rushed to judgment in charging his client with murder.
