Floyd County jury unable to reach verdict in Denny Wages case

Emotions run high after a Floyd County jury isn't able to reach a verdict in the trial of a man accused of killing three members of a southern Indiana family.

This is the second time a jury hasn't been able to make a decision.

Wages struck his head on the elevator door after meeting face-to-face with the victim's family outside the courtroom.  He had tried to apologize to the family, even as family members told him he could never understand what it was like for them to lose their loved ones.

Friday morning, prosecutor Steve Owens said a meeting has been set for next week among the judge, prosecution and defense attorneys to decide the next step in the case. 

Wages was charged with reckless homicide in the crash that killed Bobby Littrell, his wife Kimberly, and their two-year-old daughter Shelby.

Wages was driving a pick-up truck four years ago on Highway 150 in Floyd County when he crossed the center line and crashed head-on into the Littrell vehicle.

It would be unusual for a third trial to happen, but it could, legally, be done.  That decision will not be made until next week at the earliest.
