CA: Jury Acquits for Murder, hangs in Domestic Self Defense Case
WOODLAND — Acquitted of both first- and second-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband, Susan Hoskins has her first bid at freedom in more than a year while prosecutors decide whether to retry her on a lesser charge.
Hoskins was freed from the Yolo County Jail on $140,000 bail as of this morning. On Monday, Yolo Superior Court Judge David Reed declared a mistrial in her homicide case, the result of jurors saying they were hopelessly deadlocked on a count of voluntary manslaughter.
