Taxi driver death blamed on twin

Jurors in suburban Philadelphia resumes deliberations Monday in the case of a man whose attorney is blaming his client's identical twin for the murder of a taxi driver. Prosecutors say 20-year-old Ramir Steve of Upper Darby killed 42-year-old Gregory Cunningham near his taxi in the early hours of Christmas Eve 2007. If convicted of the most serious charge of first-degree murder, he could face the death penalty.

But Steve's lawyer says both his client and his client's twin brother, Romar, handled the revolver used in the murder. He says the other man got a "good deal" from Delaware County prosecutors for his cooperation.

Prosecutors, however, cite testimony from three witnesses that the defendant bragged about the killing.

Jurors deliberated for four hours Thursday and for more than 12 hours Friday without reaching a verdict.
