Dirksmeyer case: another mistrial

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 9:03 PM


For the second time, the jury in the case of Gary Dunn, the man accused of killing Arkansas Tech University student and beauty queen Nona Dirksmeyer in 2005, has been unable to reach a verdict, resulting in a mistrial.

Dunn was Dirksmeyer's neighbor, and became a suspect following the acquittal of Dirksmeyer's boyfriend Kevin Jones in 2007. Dunn's first trial in the slaying ended in a mistrial last April. The jury had been deliberating in the current trial since Thursday, but told Johnson County Circuit Judge Bill Pearson they had been unable to reach a unanimous verdict around 8 p.m. tonight.
