ST-JEROME, Que. – The jurors at Guy Turcotte’s murder trial will continue their deliberations on Sunday after failing to reach a verdict Saturday.

Turcotte, 43, is charged with first-degree murder in the 2009 stabbing deaths of his children, Olivier, 5, and Anne-Sophie, 3.

The jurors returned to court on Day 6 of their deliberations to ask the judge for clarifications on a Criminal Code provision pertaining to the defence of not criminally responsible.

Turcotte admitted to causing the children’s deaths but his lawyer argued the jury should find him not criminally responsible by way of mental disorder.

The three other possible verdicts are convictions on first-degree murder, second-degree murder or manslaughter.

This is Turcotte’s second trial on the charges. In 2011, a verdict of not criminally responsible took that jury six days of deliberations to reach.
