Jury Deadlocks In Machete Attack Trial

SANTA ANA (AP) — A mistrial has been declared in the attempted murder and mayhem trial of three people charged with conspiring to kill an Orange County man with a machete.

The Orange County Register says the jury deliberated for about two days before announcing Thursday that it was hopelessly deadlocked and could not reach a verdict on any defendant in the 2008 attack on Frank Sharpski.

Prosecutors alleged that Mary Sharpski conspired with her boyfriend Michael Shores II, to murder her husband and hired Antonio Ortega to do the job.

Frank Sharpski survived, but his thumb, index finger and middle finger of his left hand were cut off, his nose was barely attached and his skull was fractured.

The judge scheduled a hearing July 1 to select a date for a retrial.
