10:29 P.M. - Angry judge refuses to send Jensen jury home

Judge Bruce Schroeder began shouting at Mark Jensen's lawyer, Craig Albee, over Albee's request to send the jurors home.

"No! Period!," exclaimed Schroeder.

That prompted Albee to argue further with Schroeder. Prosecutor Robert Jambois chimed in that the jury hasn't asked to go home and the issue shouldn't even be considered until they do.

"They'll tell us what they want when they want it," Jambois said.

Regaining his composure, Schroeder rejected Albee's plea that keeping the jury at the Walworth County Courthouse any longer tonight would be "coercive."
