The second attempt at convicting Radcliff resident Jarrod Davis of the murder of his 36-day-old son has again ended with a hung jury as jurors failed to reach consensus.

Davis was accused of killing his son, Ja'Vion, in January 2013. The trial started on Wednesday.

The jury, who has been deliberating for seven hours, had been Allen charged - asked to reach a verdict - by Judge Ken Howard. 

A jury in October failed to reach a consensus on the murder charge in the case.

Davis faced 20 to 50 years in prison, or life, if he had been found guilty of the Class A felony.
