LOS ANGELES — Jurors in the murder trial of former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle began deliberations from scratch Wednesday with a new member, but did not reach a verdict before their day was cut short.

A juror had to attend a medical appointment in the afternoon, so the jury deliberated for less than three hours - from just after 9 a.m. to about 11:45 a.m. The panel is scheduled to reconvene at 9 a.m. today.
