The jury in the attempted murder trial of Ronald Wasser has been sequestered for the night at a Moncton hotel and will continue to deliberate when they return to court on Friday.

The six men and six women have not yet reached a verdict. On Thursday evening, they asked to listen to Norma Wasser's two hours of testimony, something that will be done on Friday morning.

Wasser, 48, of Riverview, is accused of trying to kill his estranged wife, Norma Wasser, 49, with a 12-gauge shotgun on May 29, 2013, while she slept.

He is also charged with discharging a firearm with the intent to wound or endanger her life, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, aggravated assault, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The couple was going through a divorce at the time and Ronald Wasser had been ordered by the court to be out of the family home on Kerry Court by noon on the day of the shooting, the courtroom heard.

Norma Wasser's left arm was broken in two places and an artery was also broken, she testified.

During deliberations on Wednesday afternoon, the jury had asked to listen to the 911 call the Wassers' two sons made on the morning in question.

They also wanted to hear the testimony of the eldest son, Michael, again.

At about 7 p.m., the jury returned with another question about evidence, but the judge told them they would have to decide the case based on the evidence presented at the trial. "You are not the investigators," he said.
