PITTSBURGH (AP) —
Prosecutors in western Pennsylvania said they plan to retry a Pittsburgh-area man whose double homicide trial ended in a hung jury.
According to Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE, Allegheny County jurors were unable to reach a unanimous verdict Monday in the trial of 21-year-old Richard Krista, of Homestead.
Authorities allege that he killed 21-year-old Cory Ruder and 19-year-old Joseph Sherrill at the Mon View Heights housing complex in West Mifflin in May 2012.
Prosecutors said they had a report of an earlier gun battle allegedly between the defendant and Ruder, and a witness reported seeing him fleeing the shooting scene.
Mike Manko, a spokesman for the county District Attorney's Office, said attorneys are expected to select a date for a new trial this week.
