A mistrial has been declared in the murder case against Mariano Fernandez Perez, 24, who is accused of killing local grape grower Jakov Dulcich.
Fernandez Perez was charged with four felony counts, including first-degree murder. Other counts include shooting at an occupied vehicle, attempted murder, and possession of a firearm by a felon.
On September 13, the jury came back to the judge, unable to reach a unanimous verdict. A status hearing is set for September 19 to decide the next steps in the case. The Kern County District Attorney will have to decide if they re-try the case or not.
