Jurors spent a second day of deliberations without a verdict in the case of a Florida woman accused of arranging the killings of her millionaire husband and his mother.
The federal jury in White Plains, N.Y., considered the case for about 7½ hours Tuesday, following 6 hours of deliberations the day before, after the 8-week trial wrapped up.
Narcy Novack of Fort Lauderdale and her brother, Cristobal Veliz of New York City, are accused of paying others for the fatal 2009 beatings of Ben Novack Jr. and Bernice Novack.
Ben Novack's father built the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach.
Prosecutors say Narcy Novack feared her husband would divorce her. They say she ordered the attacks to secure the multimillion-dollar family estate for herself.
The defense has suggested that Novack's daughter was responsible. She has not been charged.
