Mistrial Declared In Capital Murder Trial Of Gary Dunn

After approximately 15 hours of deliberations, jurors in the capital murder trial of Gary Dunn informed Circuit Judge Bill Pearson that they were hopelessly deadlocked and could not reach a verdict.  That prompted Judge Pearson to declare a mistrial in the case at approximately 8:00 p.m. on Friday, January 28.  Jurors were thanked for their service and dismissed from the courtroom.  This was the second trial for Dunn in Johnson County Circuit Court and the second time a mistrial was declared.
