Jurors take closer look at videotaped confession in murder trial

Jurors are taking a closer look at the videotaped confession made by the suspect in a 15-year-old double murder.

Selwyn Days, of Mount Vernon, is on trial for a fourth time in the stabbing of Eastchester millionaire Archie Harris and his home health aide in 1996.

Days confessed to police, but the defense now claims it was coerced and say he was in North Carolina at the time of the murders. Days has spent 10 years in prison during three previous trials, two of which ended in mistrials and a conviction that was later overturned.
