BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut jury is scheduled to resume deliberating in the trial of a Bridgeport man charged with killing and dismembering his girlfriend after she broke up with him.
The Bridgeport Superior Court jury is set to reconvene Monday in the case against Jermaine Richards. The panel deadlocked last week and was told by a judge to resume deliberations. A mistrial was declared last year after another jury deadlocked.
Richards is charged with murder in the April 2013 death of 20-year-old Alyssiah Wiley of West Haven, a student at Eastern Connecticut State University.
Her partial remains were found in Trumbull about a month after she was last seen with the 33-year-old Richards outside her dorm. Police say Wiley tried to break up with Richards shortly before her death.
