A mistrial was declared today after the Henry County jury in Seth Techel’s murder retrial failed to come to a verdict. Techel is now being held on $750,000 cash only bond at the Monroe County Jail. A mistrial was declared in Techel’s first trial this past spring.

He’s charged with two felonies, first-degree murder and non-consensual termination of a pregnancy, in connection with the shooting death of his wife, Lisa Techel, at their home near Agency in May of 2012.
