Friday will be the fourth full day of deliberations in the Julius Webster murder trial. After failing to reach a verdict Thursday, jurors wrapped up around 4:00 p.m.

The 28-year old alleged gang leader is on trial for a carjacking and the robbery and murder of Curtis Leon Marks, Jr., 31.

Marks was murdered August 29, 2013 outside a bar at the corner of E. 70th and Superior in Cleveland.

During Webster's trial Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Astrab ordered additional security and issued strict courtroom rules. SWAT teams even accompanied the jury when they viewed the crime scenes.

Prosecutors say Webster is a not only a member but the leader of the ‘heartless felons" street gang.

His trial began last month and lasted several weeks. 

Deliberations are scheduled to resume at 9 a.m.
