Teresa Postell, assistant district attorney, questions Randall Kerrick. Kerrick was charged with voluntary manslaughter of Jonathan Ferrell. A unanimous verdict was required, but the jury deadlocked 8-4 to acquit and a mistrial was declared. Ferrells’ family called for a retrial. But Cooper, whose office handled the prosecution, announced that he would not refile the charges because his prosecutors did not think they could get a conviction.
