NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The jury in the Etan Patz murder trial went through a seventh day of deliberations Thursday.
Pedro Hernandez, 54, confessed to killing the 6-year-old boy in May 1979. He said he lured Patz into a bodega basement and strangled him.
The defense, however, says Hernandez is mentally ill and made up the story.
The jury asked for a computer with Excel Thursday to create a spreadsheet to organize its thoughts, WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported.
The judge granted the request joked he’ll say no if they ask for a coffee maker.
