(Portland, OR)  --  Jury deliberations continue today in the murder case against 2017 MAX stabbing suspect Jeremy Christian.  Closing arguments took place Wednesday, and jurors held their first day of deliberations yesterday.  Christian is facing 12 charges in total, including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and assault.  Jurors were told they could convict on a lesser charge of second-degree murder if they're unable to reach a unanimous verdict on the first-degree murder charges.  If they're still unable to reach a unanimous agreement, jurors will be allowed to convict on a charge of manslaughter with approval from ten of the 12 jurors.  Christian is accused of stabbing Taliesin Namkai-Meche and Ricky Best to death and injuring Micah Fletcher on a MAX train in 2017 after they stood up for two Muslim women whom Christian was verbally assaulting.
