After a weekend break, a Chatham County jury was back in court Monday morning to continue deliberating the fate of two Savannah men charged with murder. 

Terrell Nelson and Germaine "Juk" Grant are charged with shooting and killing Achmed Williams on 54th Street in March of 2013. 

The jury heard closing arguments Friday and then started deliberations around 3:30 p.m. After 3 hours with no verdict, Judge Walmsley decided to release the jury and bring them back Monday at 9 a.m. 

The jury went into deliberations Monday around 9:15 a.m. and shortly after 11 a.m., both men were found not guilty on all counts.
