Judge Declares Mistrial In Sonic Murder Case

Posted February 10, 2004 3:55 a.m. EST

— A Wake County judge has declared a mistrial in the murder trial of a man accused of killing an employee at a north Raleigh drive-in restaurant.

Testimony in the state's case against Deon Partridge was brought to an abrupt halt last week after the suicide of a private investigator working for the defense.

A new trial for Partridge is scheduled for mid-November.
