PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia jury has wrapped up a second day of deliberations without reaching a verdict in the case of a woman charged with taking part in a violent attack on a gay couple.

Jurors spent much of Thursday reviewing evidence but went home without deciding the fate of 25-year-old Kathryn Knott.

The suburban police chief’s daughter insists she never shouted slurs or threw a punch during an attack that left one man with a broken jaw.

Two young men who were out on the town with her that night are serving probation after pleading guilty.

Prosecutors say Knott has posted tweets showing her bias against gays.

Philadelphia officials have since expanded their hate crime law to include sexual orientation.
