John Philips, the lawyer for the family of Jordan Davis, joined Roland Martin Friday to discuss the trial of Michael Dunn, Jordan’s killer, and the possibility of an acquittal in the case. Philips told Martin that the Davis family is anxiously awaiting a verdict.

“It’s day 448 since they lost their son,” said Phillips. “They’re ready for a verdict but they’re patient. They’re praying and they appreciate the prayers of everybody else. It’s nerve-wracking to put it mildly.”

Phillips went on to say that the trial was hard on the family – particularly when Dunn took the stand and showed little emotion in his testimony of the events that led to Jordan’s death, but cried when speaking about his dog.

A verdict could come down any day now.

According to reports, the jury appears to be comprised of five men (one of whom reportedly appears Hispanic) and seven women ( two blacks, and one Asian American.) Wednesday, they were given a lengthy reading of jury instructions by Judge Russell Healey. The instructions detailed, in part, that besides first-degree murder, jurors could also consider the lesser crimes of second-degree murder or manslaughter. Dunn also is charged with attempted murder for shots fired at Davis’ three friends.

To conclude that Davis’ killing was justifiable, the defense will have to have proved that Dunn was resisting an attempt by Davis to murder Dunn or commit a felony against him. If Dunn is found guilty, he faces up to life in prison.
