Prosecutors will take Thompson homicide trial back to court
In the wake of a deadlocked jury and mistrial, we’ve once again reviewed and considered the evidence in the death of John Hernandez. It has been determined that Terry Thompson will be tried again for this homicide—allowing a jury of his peers to resolve this case.

The last two weeks have been grueling for them and we know that a retrial will have them once again go through the motions of having to relive the entries tragedy. We hope that the prosecutions get’s more time to prepare this time around and that in the end of the day the Hernandez and the community get the justice they deserve.
