Juror's chest pains end murder trial

February 04, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The trial of a 17-year-old youth charged with killing a Morgan State University student ended in a mistrial yesterday when a juror suffered chest pains during deliberations in Baltimore Circuit Court.

Kenneth Andrew Bond of the 4600 block of Marble Hall Road in Northeast Baltimore is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, attempted murder, attempted robbery and use of a handgun in the fatal shooting of Terrence Augusta McKoy, 19, a Morgan State freshman, and the wounding of Robert Lucas, 10, who was hit by a stray bullet. The December 1995 incident occurred at a bus stop across the street from Morgan.

Jurors deliberated all day Friday before telling Judge John Carroll Byrnes they were deadlocked, said Bond's attorney, William M. Monfried.

The judge asked jurors to try again yesterday morning, but soon after deliberations resumed, the juror was taken to the hospital, Monfried said. The judge then declared a mistrial.

Monfried said Bond is to be tried again this spring.
