Jury deadlocks, told to keep deliberating, sequestered
BARNSTABLE - A number of developments on the 5th day of deliberations in the Worthington murder trial. Monday afternoon the jury told the judge they were deadlocked. The judge sent the jurors back to continue trying to reach a verdict. He also squestered the jury for the night. Meanwhile Cape Wide News was outside the courthouse with other media outlets and curiously none of the media was allowed to film defendant Christopher McCowen leaving court for the day. No explanation was given. Read our sister blog Cape Cod Murder for trial coverage. Another Cape Cod Today blog on the murder Tarquin-The Truth is generating alot of buzz. Posted on 11/13 zt 6:00 PM.
