The jury went home Thursday night without reaching a verdict in the trial of a Marquette County man accused of operating a meth lab, continued deliberation on Friday morning.
Brian Chapman Howe, 44, is charged with one count of operating or maintaining a meth lab and one count of conspiracy to operate or maintain a meth lab.
The charges stem from an incident in December when a meth lab at a Gwinn home exploded. Howe was severely burned in the explosion. Howe did testify in his own defense Thursday.
We will post an update once the verdict is reached.
