Arizona rancher accused of murder near US-Mexico border will not be retried, prosecutors announce

Prosecutors will not retry an Arizona rancher in the shooting of a Mexican man on his property, as the jury was deadlocked last week. The Santa Cruz County Attorney’s Office decided not to seek a retrial. The defense attorney hopes for a dismissal with prejudice. Kelly expressed relief and sympathy for the victim’s family. Protesters demonstrated on behalf of the victim. Kelly had been on trial for nearly a month in Nogales. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing outside Nogales, Arizona. Prosecutors claimed he recklessly fired shots, but Kelly argued he only fired warning shots. Kelly rejected a plea deal earlier.
