BOSTON (AP) - The jury in the double-murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez has completed its fifth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

The former New England Patriots tight end is accused of shooting two men in Boston in 2012. Hernandez's lawyers say a former friend shot the men over drugs.

The jury has deliberated for 32 hours. Deliberations are set to resume Friday.

In court Thursday, the judge said a clerk received a call from Patriots coach Bill Belichick's attorney asking if Belichick faces consequences for not appearing in court. Hernandez's lawyers tried to subpoena him late in the trial, but a process server was unable to serve Belichick with a subpoena.

Attorney Jose Baez said he didn't push for Belichick's testimony because it wasn't important to the defense.
