Jurors are “solidly deadlocked” on the criminally negligent homicide charge in the retrial of Anne Marie Drago. News 12 was the first to report the development.
Members of the jury have, however, sent note that they've reached a verdict on criminal mischief and petit larceny charges.
The judge told the jurors to come back Friday at 9:30 a.m. for further instructions.
He told lawyers and the courtroom that he will have them continue to try to reach a unanimous verdict.
Drago is accused of running over and killing anti-gang activist Evelyn Rodriguez during a 2018 argument in Brentwood.
The Patchogue woman was convicted of criminally negligent homicide at her first trial, but a state appeals court tossed out the conviction, claiming that the prosecutor mischaracterized evidence and confused the jury.
