(iWIDK By Daniel Kiely) - Three strikes and the prosecution is out – and so may be the accused.
Terry Borgia, 63, of Detroit has been tried for first degree murder three times in the drowning death of her four-year-old grandson, and each time the case has been declared a mistrial.
According to Daily Mail, jurors may believe Borgia is covering for her mentally disabled daughter, Tonina, who was in the house at the time of the drowning.
The most recent trial ended earlier this month with a hung jury, with the jury unanimously acquitting her of first degree murder, but unable to reach agreement on some lesser charges.
Yet another pre-trial date is scheduled for January 24, but it is unclear what, if any, charges Borgia will face.
