FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The case against a former Northern Arizona University student accused of killing a classmate in 2015 has ended in a mistrial after the jury deadlocked on the verdict.
Jurors weighed a slate of charges against 20-year-old Steven Jones, including murder, manslaughter, and negligent homicide but couldn't reach a consensus Tuesday.
Jones also was charged with aggravated assault after three students were wounded when he opened fire during a late-night brawl near campus.
Jones was punched in the face during the fight that ended in gunfire after he retrieved a weapon from his car. Colin Brough ("Brew") was killed.
He claimed he acted in self-defense, while prosecutors portrayed him as the aggressor.
