Jurors dismissed as Dukes case has mistrial
WARREN — A Trumbull County jury was sent home this afternoon after some 17 hours of deliberations, unable to come up with a unanimous verdict in the trial of a Campbell man facing felony charges connected to an Oct. 5, 2020, shooting of a Warren man.
Despite the mistrial, Tre’Mon Dukes, 23, of Tenney Avenue, Campbell, still faces two counts of felonious assault and a charge of aggravated robbery. Assistant Prosecutor Charles Morrow said he will consult with his boss, Prosecutor Dennis Watkins, about the next step in the case and whether they will pursue a second trial. Both Morrow and defense attorney Mary Ellen Ditchey had no further comment.
Common Pleas Judge Andrew D. Logan, after earlier today reading a charge asking the jury to continue deliberating, came back about 1:30 p.m. inquiring if the panel had made any progress toward a verdict.
Jury forewoman Autumn Brown told the judge there was a difference of opinion among jurors and both sides have remained firm.
