Mistrial declared in Jones County Jail escapee case

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A Laurel police officer was back in court on Monday reliving the day he was shot by a Jones County jail escapee, and once again the case ended in mistrial.

The jury deliberated for a little over an hour. Ira Hadley, 20, was on trial for a second time, and this is the second mistrial verdict. Prosecutors said they haven't decided if they'll try him a third time. 

Hadley's last trial ended with a hung jury. He was accused of shooting Investigator Kim Stewart in 2009 when officers served a warrant at Hadley's mother's house acting on a tip that he was hiding there after escaping from jail.
