MIAMI (AP) - A South Florida jury is going home for the weekend after failing to reach a verdict in the case of a man accused of fatally shooting Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor.

The 12 jurors mulling the fate of 23-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. failed Friday for a third day to decide the case. They will return Monday to resume deliberations.

Rivera faces life in prison if convicted of murder in the 2007 slaying of Taylor, a Pro Bowl safety who also starred at the University of Miami. Four other men from the Fort Myers area were charged, with one pleading guilty.

Rivera confessed to police that he shot Taylor during a botched burglary at the player's Miami-area home. But Rivera testified that the confession was coerced and someone else shot Taylor.
