After two days of deliberations, a Halifax jury has still not reached a verdict at Paul Calnen's murder trial.

Calnen is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of Rita Jordan.

Jordan was reported missing in 2013. The 34-year-old lived with Calnen in a home outside Halifax.         

Calnen has pleaded guilty to interfering with human remains but says he did not kill Jordan.        

His defence has told the court Jordan died from an accidental fall.

The jury came back briefly Friday with a question for the judge.

They will resume deliberations Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
