Hung jury declared in murder trial

July 28, 2007


— A hung jury was declared Friday in the first-degree murder trial of a husband and wife charged in the death of a man whose body has never been found.

After nearly two weeks of testimony and deliberations, the Stanton County jury told a judge Friday it could not reach a unanimous decision in the trial of Chad Floyd and his wife, Shannon Floyd.

Senior Judge Jack Lively declared the hung jury and scheduled a new trial for next January.

The Floyds are charged in the death of Michael Golub, 27, of Johnson City.

Golub disappeared May 20, 2005, after leaving his job to pick up his son at Shannon Floyd's home. His pickup was found six days later on a county road in northwest Grant County, but his body has never been found.
