El Paso - - - An El Paso judge declared a mistrial in the sentencing phase of the Nakia Dawkins trial.
For the past three days, the jury had been deciding the Fort Bliss soldier's sentence.
This, after finding him guilty last weekend of injury to a child in the death of two-year-old Milayna Harris.
NewsChannel 9 reporter Monique Griego tells us from the courthouse in Downtown El Paso that a new jury will be formed to deliberate Dawkins' punishment. No word on when that new jury will be called.
