BOSTON – Jury deliberations continue in the case of six former Massachusetts facility officials responsible for the 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that killed 76 people and left hundreds of patients dead.
Jurors in the most recent case, coming from the outbreak linked to the now closed New England Compound Center, are due back in federal court on Monday after failing to reach a verdict on Friday.
Former employees face mail fraud, extortion and conspiracy charges.
Pharmacy co-founder Barry Cadden and a pharmacist, Glenn Chin, are serving a prison sentence after being convicted of postal fraud and extortion. Both were cleared of murder in the second degree.
The outbreak has sickened more than 700 people in 20 states and is considered the worst public health crisis in recent US history.
