Jury deliberations continued for a third day Friday, but no verdict was reached for two police officers charged with the rape of a drunk woman in her East Village apartment.

Officer Kenneth Moreno is charged with raping the 27-year-old after she came home from a night of drinking in December 2008 while Officer Franklin Mata allegedly acted as lookout.

Jurors had a short day of deliberations and asked the judge to clarify the charge of falsifying business records. It emerged that the two allegedly told their supervisors they were going to lunch when they returned to the woman's apartment over the course of that night.

The defense argued Moreno did not have sex with the woman and that Mata was asleep on the couch.

There is no DNA evidence in the case.

The two officers each face up to 25 years in prison if convicted. Jurors will reconvene for deliberations on Monday in the eighth week of this trial.
