PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

KENNEWICK, Wash. – A Benton County judge has declared a mistrial in the Kelli Jacobsen manslaughter case. The jury was unable to reach a verdict after four days of deliberation.

No word yet if prosecutors will try to bring this case to trial again.

Jacobsen was accused of causing the injuries that led to the death of Ryder Morrison in June of 2011. Ryder died about 13 hours after paramedics arrived to take him to Kadlec Regional Medical Center.

Dr. Daniel Selove, the forensic pathologist who performed the autopsy on Ryder, testified during the trial that the cause of Ryder's death was a subdural hematoma.

We will have reaction from both sides and much more tonight at 5.
