DiMeo jury deliberations set to enter 4th day

BRIDGEPORT - A jury will enter its fourth day of deliberations tomorrow as it tries to determine whether Christopher DiMeo should get the death penalty or life in prison for the 2005 murders of a husband and wife in their Fairfield jewelry store.

The jury sent two notes to the judge today, with one saying the jurors were deadlocked on one of the aggravating factors. A prosecution request for a mistrial was denied by the judge and deliberations continued.

DiMeo was convicted of shooting and killing Tim and Kim Donnelly in their Fairfield jewelry store during an attempted robbery. A family spokesperson said members of the Donnelly family were in court today, but they have been instructed not to say anything until a verdict is reached.
