Mistrial Declared in Gang Related Murder Case

EDINBURG, Texas - A mistrial has been declared in the gang-related murder trial of a Donna man. It comes a day after Shaniqua Silva testified in the case.

On the witness stand she talked about Jorge Alberto Guajardo admitting to his involvement in a shooting that left a Brownsville teen dead. The woman allegedly then shared some of her testimony on social media.

Now Silva could face charges of her own. The judge told the court that because of the leak he had to call the mistrial. It's unclear when another trial will take place.
