DENVER -- Jurors deliberating the case against a man accused of firing the shots that killed Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams went home Wednesday without reaching a decision.

Jurors deciding the Willie Clark case will return to the Denver courthouse Thursday morning.

Clark is charged with first-degree murder in the New Year's Day 2007 shooting.

Prosecutors say Clark went into a murderous rage after a confrontation at a nightclub, and that he later told friends he fired the fatal shots.

Defense attorneys say Clark wasn't in a vehicle that pulled up besides Williams' rented limousine when someone inside fired the shots. They say Clark is being made a scapegoat.
