Mistrial Declared in EMU Murder Trial
(2007-10-23)
(wgvu) - ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A mistrial has been declared in the
trial of a man accused of raping and suffocating 22-year-old
Eastern Michigan student Laura Dickinson.
The jury had told Washtenaw Chief Circuit Judge Archie Brown
this afternoon that it was hopelessly deadlocked on the third day
of deliberations.
Orange Taylor III, 21, of Southfield was charged with an open
count of murder, which gave the jury a choice of first- or
second-degree murder.
Dickinson's slaying in December and a delay in informing the
public about it had led to the firing of university President John
Fallon.
