BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut jury has not reached a verdict in the trial of a Bridgeport man charged with killing and dismembering his girlfriend after she broke up with him.

The Bridgeport Superior Court jury failed to arrive at a decision Monday in the case against Jermaine Richards.

A mistrial was declared last year after the first jury to hear the case deadlocked.

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

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

The jury is set to resume deliberations Tuesday.
