There was a hung jury today in the Emmanuel Fair murder trial, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office.

“We will review the case over the next few weeks and then make a decision regarding a possible retrial,” said a prosecutor’s office spokesman.

Six years after charges were filed, Fair, now 33, went on trial on Feb. 14 at the King County Courthouse for the murder of Arpana Jinaga at her Redmond apartment on Nov. 1, 2008.

Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 45 years to life.
