Second mistrial in border agent case

November 05, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A mistrial was declared after a Phoenix jury deadlocked in the case of a Border Patrol agent accused of shooting and killing an illegal immigrant without provocation.

Jurors couldn't reach a verdict against Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Corbett on three possible charges: second-degree murder, manslaughter or negligent homicide. His first trial in March also ended with the jury deadlocked.

The death of Francisco Javier Dominguez Rivera in January 2007 caused an international uproar.
