Baltimore - BALTIMORE (AP) -- The trial of twin Baltimore residents accused in the fatal burning of a pit bill in 2009 has ended in a mistrial.
The mistrial was declared Monday evening after the jury had deliberated two and a half days. The trial lasted five days.
Tremayne and Travers Johnson, who were 17 at the time of the incident, had been indicted on charges of animal cruelty.
Police say a pit bull, nicknamed Phoenix, was set on fire on May 27, 2009. A police officer used her sweater to put out the flames, but the dog later died at an animal shelter in Pennsylvania.
