BROOKLYN - A jury continued deliberations Friday at the second trial of accused cop killer Lee Woods.

Woods is accused in the shooting death of Detective Russel Timoshenko. His first trial was declared a mistrial when a juror got sick. Woods had refused an alternate juror.

During deliberations Friday, jurors asked to see more of the photos and video presented during the trial. They also asked for some witness testimony to be read back.

Woods is the third man accused in the killing of Timoshenko and the attempted killing of Detective Herman Yan during a 2007 traffic stop. Dexter Bostic was found guilty on all charges, including aggravated murder, aggravated attempted murder and three counts of criminal possession of a weapon. Robert Ellis was acquitted of murder and attempted murder, but found guilty of criminal possession of a weapon.

Prosecutors say Woods and the others were driving a stolen vehicle with illegal weapons inside when they were pulled over.

Woods has maintained he was only driving the night of the incident and took no part in the shooting.
