A Bridgeport Superior Court judge has reportedly set a deadline for deciding on whether a man convicted of killing his girlfriend and cutting up her body will receive a fourth trial.
Jermaine Richards was convicted earlier this year of killing Alyssa Wyley.
His lawyers claim one of the witnesses was related to a juror that returned the guilty verdict.
According to the Connecticut Post, the witness testified the juror was her "sister's boyfriend's, sister's husband."
The judge reportedly told both sides he expects to make a ruling by the end of January.
Wiley disappeared back in April of 2013 and was last seen outside her dorm at Eastern Connecticut State University with Richards, whom she was dating at the time.
Her dismembered body was found about a month later in the woods in Trumbull, a mile and a half from his home.
