ERIE, Pa. (AP) - Northwestern Pennsylvania prosecutors say they’ll retry a man who’s accused of killing an aspiring rapper.

Keith Horton’s first trial ended in a homicide acquittal and a hung jury on voluntary manslaughter and aggravated assault in the death of 21-year-old Arbie Wilson Jr.

The Erie Times-News reports Monday (https://bit.ly/1OPPvHs) the Erie County District Attorney’s Office is seeking convictions on the deadlocked charges.

Prosecutors say they’re still considering whether to retry Horton’s co-defendant Jameele Williams.

Horton and Williams were convicted of recklessly endangering a man who survived the shooting but did not testify.



Prosecutors say Wilson was killed when a fight spilled out of the lounge at the Downtown Erie Hotel.

They say Horton and Williams pursued Wilson and killed him in the drive-thru lane of a closed bank.
