Arizona rancher George Alan Kelly’s defense alleges that a “lone holdout” juror prevented acquittal, prompting state consideration of a second trial.

Arizona rancher George Alan Kelly faced trial for second-degree murder after a Mexican national was found shot dead on his property. The jury was deadlocked, with one juror refusing to convict, leading to a mistrial. There were claims of cartel influence in the investigation. Defense consultant Dr. Ron Martinelli criticized the sheriff’s handling of the case and vowed to seek an investigation. The defense argued that the rancher acted in self-defense against armed men. Kelly’s defense team highlighted flaws in the investigation, including the failure to recover the fatal bullet. The jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision due to conflicting narratives presented in court.
