[bitsontherun lh4fSZ3s]

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. – (WCBI) A mistrial is declared in a Lowndes County assault trial where a renter was accused of assaulting her landlord.

Late Tuesday afternoon, the Circuit Court jury split five to seven in the trial of 40-year old Laura Griffin.

Griffin testified that on December 14th of 2009, she acted in self defense against Dean Loftis.

Griffin claims Loftis entered the duplex angry over a message Griffin had left three days earlier about hot water and appliances not working.  Loftis said she simply went to the unit to check on a heater and that Griffin attacked her, even though Loftis says she had the right to enter her property.

No word on a new trial date.

    This lady has some major anger issues and I pray that the jury can see through her fake persona. Keep her in court long enough and you will see her true colors.

    Griffin was able to fool some of the jurors with her lies.Glad to know that some jurors could see through her fake performance! I’m sure if the jurors had known about her previous assaults they would have found her guilty. Her next victim might not be so lucky!
