Ramsey County prosecutors said Monday that they plan to retry a Carver County man who is charged with fatally shooting another man following a minor vehicle collision.
Anthony Trifiletti faces a second-degree murder charge in the death of Douglas Cornelius Lewis, 39. A judge declared a mistrial after a jury could not come to a verdict earlier this month.
Trifiletti is still in custody with bail conditions unchanged, according to a news release from the Ramsey County Attorney's Office.
Lewis died on May 1 after a fender bender crash between the two in St. Paul. Trifiletti said he was acting in self-defense. Lewis' family previously told the Star Tribune they believed Trifiletti, who is white, perceived Lewis, who is Black, to be a threat because of his race.
Police did not find weapons on Lewis at the scene.
