"Do whatever you need to do to make that work," Healey told prosecutors, handing over his set of jury instructions to be provided to the jury.

At 4:30 p.m. Thursday, the jury set out another question, this inquiring on the date of one of Michael Dunn's letters written from jail. (Answer: June 2013.)

With the jury completed just over 10 hours of deliberations at 6:15 p.m., Healey released them for the day, with instructions to begin again at 9 a.m. Friday.

Healey also made the decision to keep all four alternate jurors sequestered another night in case any of them was needed to step in for one of the 12 jurors currently in deliberations.

The court administration announced Thursday that the media will be given at least 30 minutes notice when and if a verdict is reached before it will be announced.
