    No verdict yet in assault trial of Waltham police chief

    A Concord District Court jury deliberated for about an hour Tuesday without returning a verdict in the trial of Waltham Police Chief Thomas LaCroix, who is charged with assaulting his wife, Andrea, and her friend on June 12 last year at the couple’s Maynard home. The eight men and one women will return Wednesday to continue weighing evidence from the four-day trial. LaCroix has been on paid leave since his arrest by Maynard police on June 14, 2012. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on bail but is wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet to ensure that he stays away from witnesses in the case.
