Arizona rancher, 75, will not face retrial for charges of killing unarmed migrant

State prosecutors will not retry 75-year-old George Alan Kelly, an Arizona rancher accused of killing an unarmed migrant on his property near the U.S.-Mexico border. The decision comes after a mistrial was declared when jurors couldn’t agree on charges of second-degree murder and aggravated assault. Kelly allegedly shot an AK-47 at a group of migrants, fatally striking Gabriel Cuen-Buitimea. The defense now seeks to dismiss the case with prejudice. Despite emotions running high during the hearing, the case may be ending without further prosecution due to the unique circumstances and challenges surrounding it.
