BROOKLYN - Deliberations in the trial of a teenager accused of killing a radio newsman appear to have reached a stalemate.

The jurors sent out a note Wednesday at the trial of John Katehis. It said: "No consensus will be made. People's minds are made up."

The judge told them to go to lunch and then get back to work. They were later sent home for the day. Katehis is accused of stabbing George Weber to death in his Carroll Gardens home last year. Prosecutors say Weber responded to Katehis' Craigslist ad offering sex for money.
