The judge in the trial of Collazo, who is accused of stabbing a woman while she was on the toilet in 2017, declared a mistrial in October.

Collazo, 23, is facing a felony first-degree intentional homicide charge. He’s accused of killing 43-year-old Christine Scaccia-Lubeck and then fleeing to Missouri before geting caught.

After a four-day trial, the jury told Judge Barbara McCrory that deliberations had become “toxic,” and that one juror had threatened another juror.
