Jury deadlocked in Saratoga Winners arson case

COLONIE, N.Y. — After days of deliberation, jurors in the arson case of Akiva Abrham say they cannot reach a verdict, resulting in a mistrial of the case.

Jurors were deadlocked at nine to three to convict the former doctor of torching the Saratoga Winners night club back in April

Abraham faced five to 15 years in prison if convicted on the charges against him.

Police alleged Abraham, who had only owned Saratoga Winners for two weeks when it burned, set the fire to collect nearly $500,000 in insurance money.

No date has been set yet for a re-trial.
