BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) — A mistrial has been declared for the man accused of killing a 13-year-old boy and wounding three people, including the boy’s mother and younger brother. The judge declared a mistrial during jury selection in the Jeremy Webster murder trial.

The new trial date has been set for Oct. 25. The judge declared a mistrial when “a necessary and indispensable witness” would not be able to travel to Colorado from out of state to testify in person due to an emergency medical issue.
