WILKES-BARRES, Pa. — Earlier today, Harlow Cuadra learned he is to serve life in prison for the January 2007 murder of Cobra Video producer Bryan Kocis. The former escort, adult producer and website entrepreneur was convicted of first-degree homicide last week.

“The jury of eight men and four women could not reach a unanimous decision whether prosecution presented any aggravating factors worthy of the death penalty," reports the Citizen's Voice newspaper.

According to media reports, jurors agreed one of the aggravating factors was not valid, "but had reached an impasse on the other."

The jury deliberated for roughly five and a half hours today before returning to the courtroom to inform Judge Peter Paul Olszewski Jr. they "could not reach a unanimous verdict, despite being given more time."

Cuadra was additionally convicted on charges of theft, robbery, arson and abuse of a corpse.

In December, Joseph Kerekes, Cuadra's former partner and one-time co-defendant, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and received the mandatory sentence of life in prison. The plea spared him from the death penalty.

Cuadra, 27, was accused of murdering Kocis on Jan. 24, 2007 and setting fire to his Dallas Township, Pa., home. He and Kerekes, 34, were arrested in May 2007 and formally charged two months later.
