KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A man who was released from jail after two juries couldn’t convict him in a 2015 Kansas killing is now charged with a homicide in Kansas City, Missouri.

Jackson County authorities announced Wednesday that 30-year-old Antoine Fiedler was charged with first-degree murder in the December death of Rosemarie Harmon. He’s also charged in the shooting of a male friend of Harmon’s.

Fielder was released from the Wyandotte County (Kansas) jail after a second mistrial last July in the shooting death of 22-year-old Kelsey Ewonus, of Overland Park. Two juries couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict in the case. The murder charge was dropped in September.
