Eric Taylor will be on trial again to face the four counts in which resulted in a hung jury.

Eric Taylor was on trial for two days in Starke Circuit Court which ended with not guilty verdicts on charges of dealing in methamphetamine and possession of chemical reagents or precursors with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine. The jury was deadlocked on counts of possession of methamphetamine, possession of a syringe, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia. The jury deliberated for five hours.

In a court hearing on Wednesday afternoon, it was determined that Taylor will go to trial again on the four counts that caused a hung jury. That is set for Oct. 22 at 9 a.m.

In the meantime, a plea recommendation has been reached in another case where Taylor is facing a charge of possession by a meth offender. That hearing is set for Thursday, Aug. 27 at 9 a.m.
