A second day of jury deliberations brought no verdict in the trial of Richard Bromley.
Bromley, 23, is accused of causing the death of his girlfriend Claudia Williams in a car crash on School Lane in Guilden Sutton on June 24, 2013.

He was at the wheel when his Vauxhall Corsa left the road and collided with a tree. Miss Williams in the passenger seat was killed instantly.
Bromley, of Daniell Way, Great Boughton, is charged with causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs. He faces an additional count without the stipulation on alcohol in relation to the same incident.
The defendant says Miss Williams shoved his arm as they travelled along School Lane, which caused the car to jolt to the left.
The jury had still not come to a conclusion during their discussions at Warrington Crown Court on Thursday (May 26). At the end of a day a juror was discharged from service as they are due to go on holiday, reducing the panel to 11.
Judge Neil Flewitt QC is still not accepting a majority verdict at this stage.
The defendant denies the charges against him. The trial at Warrington Crown Court continues on Friday.
