LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A mistrial has been declared in the trial of a former Haskell Indian Nations University student accused of rape.

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://j.mp/2auikNc ) that a Douglas County jury couldn’t reach a verdict in the case. District Court Judge Paula Martin on Wednesday declared a mistrial, the second such result in the reported rape of a Haskell Indian Nations University student.

A 21-year-old man was accused with another man of raping a 19-year-old freshman in a university dorm last November. Both men were expelled from Haskell.

The other suspect’s trial also ended without a unanimous verdict.

A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 1 to determine how prosecutors will proceed in the latest case.
