A second trial has been scheduled for a defendant charged with murder in a March 2012 shooting after the first trial ended in a hung jury earlier this week.
The next trial for Charles Carnelius Martin, 24, is scheduled to begin Nov. 4, according to Kern County Superior Court records. A mistrial was declared Monday after the jury could not reach a unanimous decision.
Martin is charged with the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Marquette Demetrius Green in the 1900 block of Hasti Acres Drive. A gun was recovered, and police said Martin and Green knew each other.
