Associated Press - August 6, 2010 6:44 PM ET

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Still no verdict in the trial of an Arkansas doctor charged in a bombing outside the home of the state medical board chairman.

Jurors on Friday wrapped up their second day of deliberations at about 5:30 p.m. They are to return Monday at 9 a.m. to consider whether to convict Dr. Randeep Mann, who is charged in the Feb. 4, 2009, in the driveway of Dr. Trent Pierce's home in West Memphis.

The explosion badly injured Pierce. Prosecutors say Mann planned the attack because he blamed Pierce for the loss of his license to prescribe narcotics.

Mann faces up to life in prison if convicted. He is also charged with weapons and obstruction counts.

The jury began deliberations Thursday morning.
