Jury still out on DiMeo's sentence in murder case

FAIRFIELD - A jury continues to deliberate on whether the man who was convicted of killing a Fairfield couple should receive the death penalty or life in prison.

Jurors heard closing arguments yesterday from prosecutors and attorneys representing Chris DiMeo. Deliberations began this morning, but concluded this afternoon without a verdict.

DiMeo was found guilty of killing Kim and Tim Donnelly inside their jewelry store in Feb. 2005.

DiMeo's lawyers say he should be spared the death penalty because he was high on heroin at the time.
