ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 2 (Reuters) The jury debating whether September 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui should be executed adjourned for the day today without reaching a verdict.

The panel of nine men and three women will resume deliberations tomorrow in the only US case brought in connection with the deadly hijackings. So far the jury has been deliberating for about 35 hours over 5-1/2 days.

Moussaoui, 37, pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy in connection with the September 11 attacks, which killed about 3,000 people. The jury must decide if he is sentenced to death or life in prison.

During the trial, Moussaoui said he was supposed to have piloted a fifth plane into the White House as part of the hijacking plot.
