BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBEN) - Jurors in the trial of Buffalo Police Officer Corey Krug have still not reached a verdict following the fifth day of deliberations.

Krug is accused of multiple civil rights violations dating back to 2010. The most recent incident was on Thanksgiving Eve in 2014, when Krug was shown striking a person on Chippewa Street using his baton while that person was on the ground.

The jury will be back to the federal courthouse in downtown Buffalo on Friday morning at 8:45 to resume deliberations.

Krug faces a decade in prison if convicted.
