Jury continues to deliberate in the Eastchester double murder case

The jury must decide whether Selwyn Days killed two people in Eastchester seven years ago.

On Tuesday, the jury said so far it was hopelessly deadlocked in the case against Days. Days is 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 is charged with first and second-degree murder. If convicted, he could face life in prison without parole.
