Arizona rancher accused of fatally shooting Mexican migrant near border declared mistrial

An Arizona judge declared a mistrial in the case of a rancher accused of shooting a Mexican man near the U.S.-Mexico border, after jurors couldn’t reach a unanimous decision. The prosecutor’s office will decide if they retry George Alan Kelly for second-degree murder or drop the case. Prosecutors claimed Kelly recklessly shot at a group of men, while Kelly’s lawyer argued they were warning shots. The trial included a visit to the ranch and border. The Mexican consulate is waiting to learn about the mistrial’s implications. Kelly could have faced a minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted of second-degree murder.
