ODESSA - An unexpected turn of events in the trial of an accused killer.

On Wednesday, a mistrial was declared in the case of Johnny Lee Wells.  

Judge Denn Whalen handed down that order after attorneys found out that a seated juror could not write or read in English.

District Attorney Bobby Bland says they'll retry Ellis in a few weeks.
