By Scotty Reid – After deliberating since February 12, over 30 hours later, the jury in the Michael Dunn murder trial has found him guilty on three charges of attempted second-degree murder and one charge of shooting into a moving vehicle but the jury remained deadlocked on the murder charge involving the killing of Jordan Davis. It would seem a no-brainer that Dunn would be found guilty of at least manslaughter but because it could not reach a unanimous agreement, the judge declared a mistrial on the one charge related to the killing of the 17-year-old teen who was in the vehicle that Dunn fired into at a Jacksonville gas station.
The state of Florida can retry Dunn on the 1st degree murder charge but prosecutors have not announced yet if they plan to do so. Dunn faces a minimum of sixty years in prison for the four charges he was found guilty off committing.
Update: Florida state attorney Angela Corey has announced that Michael Dunn will be retried for the murder of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.
