Mistrial declared
(WOUB) - A mistrial was declared Friday in the case of a Zanesville man accused of trying to kill a toddler.

44-year-old Randy Dillon was arrested after Miah Beatty was found in a ravine nearly ten miles from her home.

Court officials say a question was asked of a witness that was inappropriate and caused the mistrial to be declared.

Dillon is charged with attempted murder, rape, kidnapping, burglary and gross sexual imposition.

Dillon entered NOT guilty pleas on ALL charges.

No new trail date has been set.
