(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) CHARLESTON W.Va. Safar 9 1437 Nov 21 2015 SPA -- After a third full day of deliberations a jury recessed Friday without reaching a verdict in the criminal trial of ex-Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship according to AP.
Jurors have been trying since Tuesday evening to reach a decision. Blankenship is charged with conspiring to break safety laws at the Upper Big Branch coal mine and defraud mine regulators in the years before an explosion killed 29 men at the mine in southern West Virginia in 2010. He's also accused of lying to financial regulators and investors about company safety.
