Judge Robert E. Morin declared a mistrial in the case against Daquan Tinker Thursday, after a jury cleared him of two charges and convicted him of one, but deadlocked on remaining charges, including second-degree murder for the shooting death of Terrence Robinson.
Earlier Thursday, jurors acquitted Tinker of first-degree premeditated murder and felony murder, but he was convicted of robbery while armed. Jurors believed Tinker was involved in the robbery of Antoine Boddie, before Robinson’s death.
Boddie told jurors that Tinker and his friends robbed him just before Robinson’s murder.
Judge Morin set a status hearing for November 7 at 10:30 a.m. in courtroom 215.
