Justice for Jonathan Ferrell – Jury Deadlocked
A mistrial has been declared in the trial of Randall Kerrick, who was tried for voluntary manslaughter in the killing of unarmed Jonathan Ferrell.
Today was the fourth day of jury deliberations. The jury earlier told the judge that they were deadlocked, but that discussions after lunch had been productive.
At about 4:15 EST, the jury reported that it was still deadlocked at 8-4, and Superior Court Judge Robert Ervin declared a mistrial.
It is not yet known whether prosecutors will seek to try the case again nor how many jurors voted guilty or not guilty.
This is a developing story and we will keep it updated in the comment section.
As a side note, Adobe Flash continues to crash on my computer freezing it, and I’m experiencing where typing a sentence results in letters not where I typed them. I’m going to try to work these problems out so I can get back to doing what I love — writing for the blog.
