Texas Man Could Face 3rd Trial in Wife's Death 10/16/13
BROOMFIELD, Colo. - A Texas man accused of killing his wife in Colorado
will be tried a third time.
Two juries have deadlocked on reaching a verdict for Frederick Mueller of
San Angelo, most recently last week in suburban Denver. The Denver Post reports
that Mueller will be tried a third time in Broomfield, Colo.
Court records show he is currently facing a second-degree murder charge.
Leslie Mueller drowned near the couple's vacation home outside Lake City in
May 2008. Mueller says she fell over an embankment and into a creek during a
hike. Prosecutors say the evidence suggests that she was held down in the water.
