WOBURN, Massachusetts — A judge overseeing the murder trial of Sean Fitzpatrick has declared a mistrial Tuesday after the jury announced for a second time that it was deadlocked.
The final note from jurors, delivered at the end of the fourth day of deliberations, said: “some members expressed conviction they could never vote guilty in the absence of physical evidence.”
Fitzpatrick was charged in the double murder of his ex-lover’s husband and the husband’s employee. - CNN Insight
