Jurors will be provided transcripts of the testimony that former patrolman Michael Slager gave this week during his murder trial in South Carolina. They will also get a copy of the testimony from an agent who investigated the shooting death of Walter Scott. The jury is in its first full day of deliberations. Slager is charged in the death of Scott, a black man who was shot five times in the back fleeing a traffic stop last year. The shooting was captured on dramatic cellphone video that stunned the nation.
