A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a Bryan man accused of killing his neighbor.

After about ten hours of deliberating the fate of Lee Earnest Hamilton, 53, the jury remained deadlocked Thursday.

Hamilton pleaded not guilty to beating Robert Jordan, 44, to death with a shotgun.

Hamilton allegedly tried to shoot Jordan, but when the shotgun didn't go off, he instead beat him with the gun.

Hamilton could have faced up to life in prison.
