No verdict in capital murder trial

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A Hinds County capital murder case has ended in a mistrial when a jury couldn't reach a decision.

Jamal Johnson had been on trial for the 2009 slayings of 2 men at a south Jackson apartment.

Prosecutors on Wednesday told The Clarion-Ledger that they will try Johnson again.

Authorities say Quintyn Wilson and Fred Smith were shot to death during an apparent robbery at their apartment.
