Case Against Man Accused in Stepdaughter’s Death Ends in Hung Jury for Second Time
STANISLAUS COUNTY -- It was a hung jury not once but twice for a Stanislaus County man accused of abusing his 4-year-old stepdaughter, resulting in her death in 2007. It has been 11 years of courtrooms, hearings and two jury trials in 4-year-old Adrianna Jimenez’s death. For the second time Wednesday, with new jurors, her stepfather Jeff Lopez's child abuse trial resulted in a hung jury.
