TWO HUNG JURIES!!! Daily Coverage of Renteria Murder Trial

Posted on October 13, 2010



Daniel Montes Renteria, 27, is on trial after an August hung jury in the shooting deaths of James Marschinke and Richard Rue Jr.

The case is the quintessential snapshot of the American justice system.

Renteria claims self-defense, saying that Marschinke molested his 3-year-old son and both men had plans to kill him.

Renteria shot the men in broad daylight in one of the victim’s front yard, as neighbors watched.

I watched the complete first trial and am reporting on the second.
