Dingus Headed Back to Court in September after Mistrial
No verdict in the vehicular homicide trial of Cody Dingus. The judge declares a mistrial after reports of jury misconduct. Dingus admitted to the jury he and his girlfriend were intoxicated and was driving over 80 miles an hour two years ago on Knob Creek Road in Johnson City. He crashed and killed his girlfriend and passenger, 18-year Sheridan Edwards. Dingus insists Edwards grabbed the wheel, causing the crash as police pursued him as a DUI suspect. A status hearing has been set for September 2nd where a new trial date will likely be determined.
