LOS ANGELES (AP) — A jury deciding the ownership of an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett has concluded its first full day of deliberations.

The panel of six men and six women is considering whether to allow Ryan O'Neal to keep the portrait or if it belongs to the University of Texas at Austin.

Jurors received the case on Monday afternoon and have completed nearly five-and-a-half hours of deliberations.

The university is suing O'Neal to gain possession of the portrait, which it says should have been included in Fawcett's gift of all her artwork to the school. Another nearly identical portrait was given to the university and hangs in its art museum.

O'Neal, however, says the artwork was a gift from Warhol and he should be allowed to keep it.
