Mistrial in officers' shooting

November 24, 2005

A mistrial was declared yesterday after a Baltimore Circuit Court jury was unable to reach a verdict in the case of a man charged with attempting to kill two city undercover city police officers March 12 on Elmley Avenue.

Prosecuting attorney Richard Cecil said Judge John M. Glynn had no choice but to declare a hung jury after learning that one juror refused to participate in examining the evidence and had made up her mind at the beginning of the trial of 25-year-old William Floyd Crudup.

On Monday, Glynn will set a new trial date, Cecil said.
