Jurors in the retrial of two brothers accused of setting a pit bull ablaze heard testimony from two key witnesses Wednesday, one revealing new details in a police surveillance video while the other raised questions about what he saw the day of the crime. Police Sgt. Jarron Jackson identified Travers and Tremayne Johnson in the video, which shows parts of the May 27, 2009, incident. He pointed them out walking the dog and leading her to an alley close to where the dog was found in flames.

The July retrial of 19-year-old twins Travers and Tremayne Johnson, whose first animal-cruelty trial ended in a hung jury, has been postponed. The new city circuit court date — Sept. 16 — could complicate a civil case now scheduled for days later, however. In January 2009, five months before they are accused of setting fire to a pit bull, the Johnson brothers and three others filed a lawsuit against a Baltimore landlord, claiming that exposure to lead paint has left them unable to work.

Seven months after Baltimore prosecutors dropped gun and drug charges against teenage twins accused of setting fire to a pit bull puppy, one of the young men was arrested again — this time on attempted murder charges. Travers Johnson, 18, is slated for arraignment Jan. 27 on charges of attempted murder, assault and handgun violations — roughly a week after he and his brother, Tremayne Johnson, are scheduled for trial in Baltimore City Circuit Court on animal cruelty and mutilation charges.

There's no verdict yet in the trial of the pit bull that came to be known as Phoenix, but I say: guilty. No, not Travers and Tremayne Johnson, the 18-year-old twins accused of torching the dog on a West Baltimore street in 2009. She was burned so horribly that she had to be put down several days later. I have no idea if the Johnson brothers did it, or, rather, whether the prosecutors sufficiently proved their case or fell short, as the defense contends. Anyone who has been a juror knows how hard it can be to come up with a verdict in that jury room — much harder than coming up with an opinion out here in the peanut gallery.

Baltimore prosecutors are holding a series of meetings to determine whether to retry the animal cruelty case against twin brothers Travers and Tremayne Johnson, which ended in mistrial Monday, and expect to announce a decision soon, Deputy State's Attorney Elizabeth Embry said Wednesday. If the case is retried, it won't be immediate, however. The assistant state's attorneys who prosecuted the Johnsons — Jennifer Rallo and Janet Hankin — "clearly need a breather," Embry told members of the Mayor's anti-animal abuse commission and task force at their monthly gathering Wednesday.

The animal cruelty trial of twins Travers and Tremayne Johnson ended in a mistrial Monday after 11 jurors were unable to convince the single holdout that the brothers had set fire to the dog that came to be known as "Phoenix. " The Johnsons smiled faintly as the result was read about 6:30 p.m., after three full days of jury deliberation that followed a five-day trial. Their supporters high-fived each other quietly on one side of the gallery behind them; across the aisle, animal activists stared ahead, mostly stone-faced.

The Johnson brothers may have "faintly smiled" and "high fived" their friends upon the news that their trial in the burning of the dog Phoenix ended in a hung jury, but I surely would not want to be standing in their shoes on the final Judgment Day! S.G.K. Duffy
