It’s been seven days since a jury has been deliberating the case of a Bridgeport man accused of killing and dismembering his girlfriend in 2013.
It’s a familiar process for the victim's mother, Corinna Martin. In 2015, a mistrial was declared in the case of Jermaine Richards who’s alleged to have killed Martin's daughter, Alyssiah Wiley. The jury also deadlocked.
Wiley was found dead in 2013 dismembered in a wooded area in Trumbull.
Her boyfriend Jermaine Richards turned himself in.
Now in 2016, Martin said it has been frustrating waiting through a jury deliberation for a second time.
“It’s just been an excruciating waiting game. You're able to contemplate what’s going through their mind," said Martin.
"I’m not understanding what it is that’s not evident, but I wouldn’t want them to come to a quick decision and it be the wrong one," she said.
Richards has plead not guilty in both trials.
The jury will be back again Thursday to deliberate the case.
