Hung Jury in Durham County Murder Case

Last week, a mistrial was declared in the case of Tori Neal in Durham County after jurors were unable to reach a verdict. Neal is charged with the stabbing murder of the 89-year-old Baptist deacon Charlie Forest Davis.

Tori's attorney, assistant public defender Rebecca Wiggins, raised questions about the lack of physical evidence connecting Neal to the murder.

The State had offered the theory that the murder was gang related. It is unclear when/if the case will be retried. Neal remains out on bond.
