Jury deliberates in 'Sopranos' actor's trial

Empty

NEW YORK -- Deliberations have resumed in the trial of a former "Sopranos" actor accused in the shooting death of an off-duty New York City police officer.

The Bronx jury on Monday began weighing murder charges against Lillo Brancato, who played a wannabe mobster on "The Sopranos."

The jury last deliberated on Friday, a day after announcing it was deadlocked 11-1.

Prosecutors said Brancato and an accomplice broke into a Bronx apartment next to the home of Officer Daniel Enchautegui in December 2005. When the officer came to investigate, the accomplice shot him in the heart.

Brancato has pleaded not guilty. He got his big break playing opposite Robert De Niro in the 1993 film "A Bronx Tale."
