Still no verdict in Mattapan massacre trial


Jurors in the Mattapan massacre trial deliberated for a second day Wednesday without arriving at a verdict. All but one member of the six-man, six woman jury has spent four days so far in deliberations, but when Suffolk Superior Court judge Jeffrey Locke dismissed a juror early Tuesday and replaced him with an alternate, Locke ordered the reconstituted jury to start deliberating anew. The jurors received some legal instructions Wednesday morning from the judge as they continued to consider whether prosecutors have proven that Dwayne Moore killed four people in 2010.
