Federal Judge Gives Deadlocked Jury Another Day To Decide Fate Of Reputed Philadelphia Crime Boss In New York

The New York Post is covering the federal racketeering trial of reputed Philadelphia Cosa Nostra boss Joseph Merlino in New York.

Jurors at the Manhattan racketeering trial of reputed Philadelphia mob boss Joseph “Skinny Joey” Merlino revealed they were deadlocked Thursday, but the judge said he’d keep them deliberating at least another day.

The jury foreperson sent out a note at 3:55 p.m. that read, “We the jury are unable to come to an unanimously (sic) decision on the four counts.”

“This was a two-ish-week trial. There were long days that were pretty dense. This has not been an inordinate amount of time to be deliberating,” he said.
