Mistrial declared in Arizona case of rancher accused of shooting migrant to death

An Arizona judge declared a mistrial in the case of a rancher accused of fatally shooting a Mexican man near the border after jurors failed to reach a unanimous decision. The defendant, George Alan Kelly, was charged with second-degree murder for shooting Gabriel Cuen-Buitimea. Prosecutors claimed Kelly fired recklessly towards a group of men on his ranch, while Kelly argued he only fired warning shots. The Mexican consulate expressed interest in the case, hoping for a fair outcome for the victim’s family. The jury deliberated for over two days without reaching a decision, leading to the mistrial.
