Mercy killing jury released.
Andrew Wragg, 37, admits smothering 10year-old Jacob but says it was a mercy killing.
Yesterday, at Lewes Crown Court, Mrs Justice Rafferty discharged the jury after they failed to reach a verdict.
She told prosecutors they had seven days to decide what they would do next. Wragg, of Worthing, Sussex, was released on bail.
During the 11-day trial, the court heard Jacob had a severe form of the degenerative disease Hunter Syndrome.
He was deaf, mute and not expected to live past his early teens.
The Crown Prosecution Service said last night they were considering their position.
