VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Vicksburg teenager charged in the death of her stepmother will be retried next year.

The girl’s first trial ended in March when a Warren County jury reported it was deadlocked.

District Attorney Ricky Smith tells The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1teJkCg ) the new trial date for the 17-year-old is March 3, 2015, before Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick.

The girl has been held without bail in the Warren County Jail since December 2011 when her bonding agent revoked her $75,000 bail.

Authorities say the body of 32-year-old Michelle Vega was found May 2, 2011, in the family home in Vicksburg. Authorities say neighbors reported seeing the girl drive away from the home minutes before her stepbrother returned and found his mother’s body.

The girl was arrested in Greenville six days later.
