COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man will be retried this summer on charges he killed his identical twin during a robbery at their mother's house.
A judge in Columbus declared a mistrial in the case of Derris Lewis last week when one juror had a death in the family after deliberations had begun. The woman said she couldn't continue, and defense attorneys opted against continuing with an 11-member jury.
An Aug. 10 retrial date was set on Monday.
Nineteen-year-old Lewis has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder in the fatal shooting of his brother Dennis in January 2008.
Prosecutors say fingerprints and a bloody palm print link Derris Lewis to the crime. But defense witnesses testified he was somewhere else at the time.
