Charlotte resident Theresa McCormick-Dunlap said, “It’s very disheartening, very anticlimactic and very frustrating,” in regards to the mistrial announcement in the voluntary manslaughter case of a white North Carolina police officer who killed an unarmed black man in 2013.
McCormick-Dunlap was one of many supporters of the victim, Jonathan Ferrell, who held vigil in the Charlotte courtroom during the more than two-week trial of suspended Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Randall Kerrick.
Superior court judge Robert C Ervin declared the mistrial on Friday afternoon when the 12 jurors – seven white, three black and two Latino – reached an impasse, an 8-4 deadlock, after four days of deliberation. Jurors have not revealed whether the balance leaned toward guilty or not guilty.
