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

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/28Jj56G ) reports that a Douglas County judge made the decision Monday after jurors said they wouldn’t be able to reach a unanimous verdict. Another trial will scheduled for the 20-year-old suspect during a June 30 court appearance.

The suspect faces two felony counts of rape and one count of aggravated criminal sodomy. The second suspect, age 21, faces felony counts of aiding and abetting attempted rape and two counts of rape. His trial is scheduled to begin July 25.

The two suspects are accused of raping a 19-year-old Haskell freshman in their dormitory room in November 2014. Both were expelled from Haskell.
