Lander, Wy – Five days of emotional deliberations led up to a hung jury in the case of an inmate accused of killing a nurse
at the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton.
That's according to two jurors in the Floyd DeWayne Grady murder
The two jurors said the jury was split ten-two in favor of
conviction on Monday. Yet by Friday, after deliberations that
included lots of yelling and insults, the ten-two split remained.
District Judge Norman Young let the jurors go after 43 hours of
Rick Mickelsen says he's not sure if he's ever been on a more
emotional roller coaster than being on that jury. Another juror,
Janet McRae, says the two sides remained "polar opposites"
through the entire week.
Prosecutors say they plan to retry the case.
Grady is accused of beating and strangling Tammy Sue Watts at
the Honor Farm infirmary in 2004.
