    2nd Mistrial Declared in Death of Off-Duty Texas Constable

    A second mistrial has been declared in the case of an ex-Fort Bliss soldier accused in the 2014 death of an off-duty constable working security at a Halloween haunted house in El Paso.

    A judge in El Paso on Friday ruled jurors were deadlocked in the aggravated assault against a public servant trial of 22-year-old Devon Huerta-Person.

    A different jury in 2016 also failed to reach a verdict in the death of 45-year-old Constable Robert White. Investigators White was kicking some people out of the haunted house when he allegedly was punched and fell. He died at a hospital.

    An autopsy determined White died from health problems, including heart disease and high blood pressure, but his security-related injury was a factor.
