Second mistrial declared in woman's death
HARTVILLE, Mo. -- A judge declared the second mistrial in a week in the case of a southwest Missouri man charged with killing his wife.
A lack of potential jurors caused Wright County Circuit Judge John Moody to declare a mistrial Monday in the case of Daniel Stewart, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife, Kathy Stewart, an elementary school counselor in Ava.
Stewart, who has maintained his innocence, reported his wife missing May 13. Her body was found four days later, a few miles from the park where she was known to walk. Authorities said she likely died of asphyxiation.
