BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut jury in the trial of a woman charged with killing her boyfriend with her car has told a judge that it is deadlocked, but it’s expected to continue deliberations.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1COO9oM ) that the Bridgeport Superior Court jury sent a note to the judge on Thursday morning saying it’s deadlocked 11-1 on a murder charge against 23-year-old Cherelle Baldwin.

Judge Maria Kahn said she would send the jury back for more deliberations.

Baldwin says she was acting in self-defense when she ran down 24-year-old Jeffrey Brown with her car and crushed him to death against a cinder-block garage wall in Bridgeport in May 2013. She says Brown had choked her with a belt before she hit him with her car.
