be news Jurors have failed to reach a verdict on manslaughter charges in the trial of Joseph Weekley, a Detroit police officer, who fatally shot 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones during a police raid in 2010. The judge has declared a mistrial.

Weekley killed Aiyana, while leading officers on a video taped raid to find a murder suspect. He claimed he pulled the trigger during a struggle with the girl’s grandmother, but the grandmother said it didn’t happen that way and another officer testified there was no struggle over the gun.

A retrial date hasn’t been set yet.
