A second full day of deliberations ended without a verdict Friday in the trial of former bodega clerk Pedro Hernandez for allegedly kidnapping and killing 6-year-old Etan Patz, who vanished in Manhattan in 1979.

Notes from the jury indicated it is considering whether Hernandez's disputed 2012 confession was voluntary and reliable.

The jury asked a legal question about the NYPD's decision to not videotape the first several hours of Hernandez's interrogation.

Deliberations, which began late Wednesday, are scheduled to resume Monday. The trial lasted 10 weeks.

Hernandez, 54, is from Maple Shade, New Jersey.
