Mistrial declared in Eastchester double murder trial
A mistrial was declared Wednesday in the Eastchester double murder case.
Jurors had been deliberating since Monday, but were unable to come up with a unanimous decision on whether or not Selwyn Days killed two people seven years ago. Days, who was charged with first and second-degree murder, was accused of killing 79-year-old Archie Harris and his home health aide Betty Ramcharan in Harris' Eastchester home.
Throughout the trial, the prosecution maintained that Days admitted to the murders when interrogated by police. But Days' attorney says the confession was bogus and that there is absolutely no connection to his client. Days' attorney also said that his client's fingerprints were never found at the crime scene and neither was his DNA.
Days could face a retrial.
