Mistrial declared in second San Jose "thrill kill" trial

    A judge has declared a mistrial in the trial of a San Jose teenager accused of helping another teen fatally stab a fellow Santa Teresa High School student.
    The jury was split 9-3 in favor of first degree murder against Randy Thompson.
    The other three jurors wanted to convict Thompson of second-degree murder because they believed he didn't carefully consider killing Michael Russell.
    Thompson has been accused of helping Jae Williams lure Russell outside his South San Jose home in 2009 where they then tackled, repeatedly stabbed and possibly choked him to death.
    Williams has been convicted of first degree murder.
    The judge is scheduled to meet with lawyers Friday to schedule a new trial.  Full Story
