Post, 16 Jun 2007 (Castaneda).
A Prince George's County judge yesterday declared a mistrial after a jury was unable to reach a verdict in the retrial of a man accused of murdering two county sheriff's deputies nearly five years ago.
After deliberating for about 10 hours over two days, jurors declared themselves deadlocked over whether James R. Logan, 28, was guilty of murdering Deputies Elizabeth L. Magruder and James V. Arnaud.
Circuit Court Judge E. Allen Shepherd declared a mistrial about 5 p.m. [More]
