On Friday, Judge Quentin Sumner declared a mistrial in the case of Antonio Wardell Matthews (left) when jurors could not reach a verdict.

Matthews was charged with the 2008 murder of his brother, 22-year-old brother, Devin Scriven, in a motel room.

Cumberland County
On Friday, a jury acquitted Mark Andrews of the 2006 murder of Boyd Constant. Andrews had been held in county jail since January 2006 and walked out Friday a free man. Constant was shot in his home.

Both cases were tried non-capitally.
