Mistrial Declared for Vincente Ruiz Who is Accused of Murder in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- A mistrial was declared for the man accused of killing five people at a Pasco auto body shop more than 20 years ago. 

Tuesday a Franklin County Superior Court judge declared the mistrial because there is DNA evidence that hasn't been tested yet.

A mistrial means the whole trial process will have to start again.  That means a new jury will have to be selected.  The court will set new trial dates on Thursday.

Vincente Ruiz faces five counts of first- degree aggravated murder.
