For the second time, a judge declared a mistrial in the case of Norman Eugene Clark, accused of killing his girlfriend and their unborn son, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Criminal Court Judge Steven Sword set an Oct. 20 status hearing to determine whether the state will try Clark for a third time, after the second trial’s jury deadlocked on all counts. Victim Brittany Eldridge was killed inside her bedroom in 2011. The defense argues evidence against Clark is circumstantial.
