Good Evening. This is News 7 at FIVE, Keith Humphry reporting.

Jurors had been deliberating a couple of hours this morning, when they came out with a request.
They wanted to know if they could have certain specific passages of testimony read back to them.
In just the last hour, the jury was back in the courtroom.
Dave Fehling says they want to hear the testimony of the limo driver... the man who took Simpson to the Los Angeles airport the night Simpson's ex-wife and Ronald Goldman were killed. CUT TO DAVEY

JANET MOXHAM/COURT REPORTER: Otherwise, there was no way to know how deliberations were going and so outside the L-A County Criminal Courts Building. BRIAN KELBERG/PROSECUTOR: YOU GUYS MUST BE VERY HARD UP FOR NEWS. Reporters scrounged for quotes, ambushing Deputy D-A Brian Kelberg.

Since then South Boston police have been investigating the case.
One of their strongest pieces of evidence are photos taken by a surveillance camera allegedly showing Totten purchasing more than 320- dollars in merchandise.
But police say Totten didn't write the check using his own money.
Authorities say the account belonged to 26- year old Kevin Slade.
At first-- police thought Slade was dead when the check was written.
However, they now say, the young man was alive-- although he was murdered three months later.
Totten is NOT a suspect in that case-- police already have a conviction.
