DALLAS — Retired Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent was found guilty of intoxication manslaughter in the death of friend and teammate Jerry Brown Jr.

The verdict came after two days of deliberations.

Deliberations resumed at 9 a.m. after jurors considered the case for about three-and-a-half hours Tuesday. Jurors couldn't reach a verdict and were sequestered until Wednesday.

Brent's accused of drunken driving during the early morning hours on Dec. 8, 2012, when he crashed his Mercedes, killing passenger and teammate Jerry Brown Jr. The former nose tackle's defense argued prosecutors were unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was intoxicated.

Brent faces up to 20 years if convicted of the intoxication manslaughter charge.
