BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) - Jurors have not reached a verdict yet in the trial of a 20-year-old Minnesota man accused of fatally stabbing a Wisconsin fisherman after an argument along the St. Croix River.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1lH9TSM ) reports the jury will resume deliberations Monday morning after ending talks Sunday with no decision. Monday will be the third day of deliberations.

The jury must decide whether defendant Levi Acre-Kendall of Cambridge, Minnesota, acted in self-defense when he fatally stabbed 34-year-old Peter Kelly of St. Croix Falls. Kelly was stabbed during a confrontation between two groups of anglers on the banks of the river last April.

Prosecutors contend Acre-Kendall overreacted to the perceived threat Kelly posed.

Acre-Kendall has been on trial for first-degree reckless homicide, second-degree intentional homicide and second-degree reckless homicide.
