CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The latest on the trial of a white North Carolina police officer charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an unarmed black man seeking help after a September 2013 car crash (all times local):

9:30 a.m.

The jury has resumed its deliberations in the trial of a white police officer accused in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man two years ago.

Friday is the fourth day that the jury has gone over the evidence in the trial of Officer Randall Kerrick, who is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the September 2013 shooting death of Jonathan Ferrell. Kerrick is suspended without pay from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police force.

If convicted, Kerrick faces up to 11 years in prison.

Jurors have spent the previous two days asking Judge Richard C. Ervin for material and testimony from the trial, which is wrapping up its third week.
