Guam - There are indications that there could be a mistrial in the case against eight police officers and two civilians accused of being involved in a conspiracy to cover up the alleged beating of several arrestees last November.  Jurors informed Superior Court Judge Vern Perez late this afternoon that they have reached a verdict on a majority of the charges, but they are unable to reach a verdict on the rest of the charges. 

There were no details about what charges the jury has decided upon already.  According to attorneys in the case, Judge Perez reminded jurors of their obligation and ordered them to return to court on Monday morning to continue deliberations. 

Jurors have already been deliberating for more than two weeks now.
