Jury Can’t Reach Verdict in Aiyana Stanley-Jones’ Killing

Comments: 3  | Leave A Comment

“We are stuck,” the jury said in its first note Tuesday.

Before dismissing the jurors, the judge asked if anyone felt that more deliberations would be fruitful if “some matters” could be addressed. She didn’t elaborate. Only one juror raised her hand.

“One out of 12 probably won’t be enough,” Hathaway said.

The mistrial doesn’t mean the charges go away. Hathaway will hold future hearings to discuss the case.

“The Wayne County prosecutor’s office is prepared to proceed with the case,” Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement.

There was no immediate comment from Weekley or his attorney, Steve Fishman.

Separately, a videographer for the “The First 48,” Allison Howard, is charged with perjury and withholding video crucial to the investigation. Her trial is set for June 24.

  1. The thing is, the cop will have to live with this for the rest of his life. . . . he took the life of a 7 year old child. Even if he has no conscience, and thinks what he did was in the line of duty, at some point in his life, this will come back to him, and he will have to accept responsibility for his actions.
