In what Sheriff Shawn Justice called a "complete mistake," a sheriff's deputy's error led to the murder trial of Robert Schall again being declared a mistrial Thursday on the grounds of juror contamination in Vinton County Common Pleas Court. 

A deputy who had testified earlier in the trial was found to have given a juror a ride home at the conclusion of the trial's first day on Wednesday, Justice told The Courier. Judge Jeffrey Simmons declared a mistrial for the second time this year as Schall faced charges in the alleged October 2011 murder of Michael Hunt, of Laurelville.
