Jurors deliberating the sentencing for Arizona inmate John McCluskey have failed to reach a unanimous verdict.
It ends a four-month trial. McCluskey shot and killed the couple from Tecumseh, Okla., as they passed through New Mexico while on vacation.
Prosecutors portrayed the McCluskey as a dangerous killer who deserved nothing less than execution.
The defense painted him as a broken man with a low IQ who suffered a hard life of abuse.
