COLFAX, Wash. (AP) - A Whitman County jury convicted a man of unlawful disposal of human remains Thursday but deadlocked on kidnapping and murder charges.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/Yi5fdQ) the judge declared a mistrial.
Prosecutor Denis Tracy says 21-year-old Daniel Lazcano will be re-tried on the felony charges. He'll be sentenced March 8 on the human remains misdemeanor.
Lazcano is accused of helping his brother Frank Lazcano kill 23-year-old Marcus Schur of Rosalia in December 2011 in retaliation for a burglary.
Frank Lazcano's trial begins Monday in Colfax.
