PORTAGE, Wis. (AP) - The district attorney in Columbia County will consider whether to resubmit charges against a former nurse accused of trying to kill the wife of a man with whom she’d had an affair.

A mistrial in the case against Stephanie McMillen was declared last Friday because of unspecified juror improprieties. The Baraboo News Republic says a conference is expected to be held Tuesday to determine how to proceed with the case.

McMillen was charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, stalking and obstruction. The 45-year-old Baraboo woman was arrested in September 2012.

Prosecutors say she drove to the home of Kimberly Tennier and asked her to help look for a lost cat. A criminal complaint says McMillen tried to lure Tennier to a pond on the property, but Tennier became suspicious and returned to her house.
