A new trial was ordered in the killing of a PCC alumna when a jury could not reach a verdict after nine days of deliberation in the dramatic case of an ex-PCC student accused of murder.
A pre-trial hearing for Isaac Campbell is scheduled in January after the jury voted 10 guilty and two not guilty on a second-degree murder charge, officials said. Campbell, a former student, is charged in the 2007 killing of Liya “Jessie”Lu, who also attended the college. Her decomposed body was found covered with kitty litter in a trash can in Arcadia a month after she was reported missing.
