Mistrial declared in Kareem Lane murder trial after 10-2 deadlock

The Kareem Lane murder trial ended without a verdict Wednesday as the jury, which largely rejected the state's case, failed to come to a consensus after three full days of deliberations. Ten jurors voted to acquit Lane, while two maintained he was guilty of fatally stabbing former Muscogee County School District Superintendent Jim Burns in 1992, prompting Superior Court Judge Bobby Peters to declare a mistrial.
