Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The trial for a man suspected of murdering Keeston Dwone Fields and seriously injuring John T. Woods, will be rescheduled, according to the Smith County District Attorney's Office.
The trial for Marquel Jermon Scott, who is charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, declared a mistrial, at no fault to the defense or the prosecution, but because of a problem with a witness statement.
Scott is accused of shooting two people in the early morning hours of November 29, 2011, at the the Hyena's Clubhouse located in the 2100 block of North Grand.
Officials tell KETK the trial will be rescheduled, but a date has not yet been set. His bail totals were $1.25 million.
KETK will update when the new trial will take place.
