HUSK MURDER CASE ENDS WITH HUNG JURY - Judge Nibert Declares Mistrial, Case Will Be Re-Tried

(04/15/2014)

The Calhoun murder trial of Thomas Lee Husk, being charged with the 2011 shooting death of John Lee Cyrus, has ended with a hung jury, with Judge David W. Nibert declaring a mistrial.

After three attempts to seat a jury in Calhoun, the trial was shifted to Roane County.

The case went to jury Friday, the trial starting on Tuesday. The jury recessed Friday, returning Monday for deliberation.

The case will be scheduled for another trial, likely this summer.

Calhoun prosecutor Shannon Johnson said, "I would like to thank the jury for their hard work and consideration in trying to reach a verdict."
