Murder-for-hire trail in Golden ends with hung jury

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) – Jurors failed to reach a verdict in the case of a Colorado woman accused of trying to arrange the murder of her ex-husband, a deputy district attorney.

The trial of 36-year-old Elinor Dvir of Denver ended in a hung jury on Thursday. Prosecutors haven’t said whether they plan another trial.

Dvir is charged with solicitation of first-degree murder and other counts. Prosecutors say she tried to hire an undercover police officer posing as a hit man to kill Richard Nedlin in his Aspen home.

Nedlin is a deputy district attorney for Pitkin County, which includes Aspen. Court records say Dvir and Nedlin were in a child-custody dispute.
