SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The jury was deadlocked eight to four Friday afternoon in the Cara Rintala murder trial.

Deliberations continued Friday in Northampton, but the judge gave jurors the weekend to think about the evidence before deliberations continue Monday. The jury was handed the case Tuesday afternoon.

Rintala is accused of killing her wife Annamarie Cochrane-Rintala in their Granby home in 2010.

According to police, the couple had a "tumultuous" relationship and had discussed divorce. Rintala's first trial ended with a hung jury last March.

Earlier this month, the jury went to the crime scene at Rintala's home in Granby.

This is the first same-sex marriage murder trial for the state.

After four days of deliberation, Rintala's last trial ended with a hung jury.
