Detroit Police Officer Joseph Weekley will stand trial a second time for the shooting death of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley Jones after a judge on Tuesday declared a mistrial.

Grim-faced jurors, after deliberating for about 15 hours over three days, told Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway Tuesday afternoon they were unable to reach a verdict in the trial of Weekley, who was charged with manslaughter for fatally shooting Aiyana during a May 16, 2010, search for a murder suspect.
