BOSTON (AP) — Jurors are heading back to federal court for a third day of deliberations in the case against a former New England Mafia boss charged with killing a nightclub owner more than two decades ago.

Jurors in the Francis “Cadillac Frank” Salemme case left the Boston courthouse Wednesday without reaching a verdict. They’re expected to get back to work on Thursday.

Salemme and his co-defendant, Paul Weadick, are charged in the 1993 strangling of Steven DiSarro. Salemme and Weadick deny involvement in DiSarro’s killing.

DiSarro’s remains were found in 2016 near a mill building in Providence, Rhode Island.

Salemme headed the New England family of La Cosa Nostra in the early 1990s.

DiSarro’s family members said in a statement on Tuesday that the trial has helped provide them closure.
