Man Accused of Killing Teen Back in Court after Mistrial
EDINBURG – A case stopped short by a social media post is finally before a jury.
Jorge Alberto Guajardo is accused of killing a teenager on Expressway 83.
It happened in Donna two years ago.
Then in August, Guajardo’s trial was suddenly stopped short.
The judge declared a mistrial when a witness posted about the case on social media, despite court orders not to discuss it.
It took three months, but this week Guajardo is back in court.
A new trial is back underway. A ruling on the murder charges is expected in the coming week.
