PHOENIX (AP) -

Jurors are set to return to court in the retrial of a man charged with killing nine people at a suburban Phoenix Buddhist temple in 1991.

After several stops and starts over seven days of deliberations, the judge says he will decide Thursday morning whether to declare a mistrial.

Jurors told the judge Wednesday they were at an impasse because one juror refuses to follow instructions.

Last week, the judge considered declaring a mistrial after jurors told him the same juror was refusing to participate. She said she had already made up her mind. The judge ordered the jury to continue trying to reach a verdict.

Johnathan A. Doody was convicted in 1993 and sentenced to 281 years in prison. An appeals court overturned his conviction, ruling that he wasn't properly read his rights.
