RENO, Nev. (AP) - A judge has declared a mistrial after jurors
deliberating charges against a man charged in the death of a Sparks
toddler said they are deadlocked on a verdict.

Washoe District Judge Steven Kosach declared a mistrial Tuesday after jurors who had been deliberating for three weeks were unable to reach a verdict in the case against 23-year-old Kevin Anthony Hunt.

Hunt is accused of fatally injuring Malakai Dean when he was alone with the boy for a brief time in February 2010. He was charged with child abuse causing death.

Hunt's attorneys denied that the boy died of child abuse-related injuries.

Kosach scheduled a June 6 hearing to set a new trial date.
