A pretrial hearing in Isaac Campbell's new murder trial was delayed Wednesday. Campbell faces fresh murder charges in the August 2007 death of his ex-girlfriend Liya "Jessie" Lu.
He is scheduled to appear at the Superior Courthouse in Alhambra on March 20 to set a date for the trial.
following a month-long trial and seven days of deliberations. However, the panel became deadlocked on whether the defendant was guilty of the lesser charge of second-degree murder.
The former Pasadena City College student cannot be found guilty of first-degree murder in the case again because of the Double Jeopardy clause in the Constitution.
If convicted, Campbell would become eligible for parole in 15 years.
