BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Jurors have deadlocked for the second time in the case of a Bridgeport man accused of killing and dismembering his girlfriend.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1UPM7kA ) the jury didn’t return with a verdict Thursday in the retrial of Jermaine Richards. Jurors are due back in court on Monday.

Richards is charged with murder in the April 19, 2013 death of 20-year-old Alyssiah Wiley of West Haven. Wiley was a student at Eastern Connecticut State University.

Her partial remains were found in a wooded area in Trumbull about a month after she was last seen with 33-year-old Richards outside her dorm. Police have said Wiley tried to break up with Richards shortly before her death.

The first attempt to prosecute Richards ended in a mistrial last year after the jury deadlocked.
