OSKALOOSA, Kan. (AP) _ A 65-year-old northeast Kansas man charged with attempted murder will go on trial for a fourth time.
John Hayworth Jr., of Valley Falls, is accused of shooting William Schoonover in December 2011 over a long-simmering property dispute.
Hayworth's first trial on a charge of attempted second-degree murder ended in a mistrial, and his next two ended in hung juries.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports a Jefferson County judge on Wednesday granted a prosecution request to try Hayworth a fourth time. The trial is scheduled for Aug. 25.
Hayworth remains free on a $50,000 bond. A spokeswoman for the Kansas Supreme Court told the newspaper it's highly unusual for a case to be tried four times.
