Mistrial in Third Murder Case for Corbin Whyte
ITHACA, NY (WENY) -- The third time was not the charm for Tompkins County prosectors looking for a murder conviction against Corbin Whyte.
After a week of deliberations, a jury convicted Whyte of Tampering with Physical Evidence in connection to the shooting death of Paul Garcia in 2010. They found him not guilty of 1st degree robbery.
However, the jury was hung on a charge of first degree attempted robbery. Because of that, the jury could not find a verdict for 2nd degree murder.
This was the third trial for Whyte; his previous two trials also ended in hung juries.
Whyte will be sentenced on the Tampering charge in December.
