Judge declares mistrial in ex-Eastchester cop's manslaughter case
Five days after deliberations began, a judge has declared a mistrial in former Eastchester police officer James Pileggi?s manslaughter trial.
The decision comes after the jury repeatedly said it could not come to a unanimous decision on the top charge of second-degree manslaughter.
Pileggi claims it was a tragic accident when he fatally shot friend Andre Everett in 2009, but prosecutors say the former officer acted recklessly when displaying his gun.
The judge has yet to set a date for the retrial.
Jury remains deadlocked in ex-cop's manslaughter trial
