Christensen Defense Asks For Mistrial, Denied

(Peoria, IL)  —  The defense in Brendt Christensen’s murder trial is being denied a mistrial.  Attorneys had asked for the mistrial yesterday saying an FBI video of the defendant requesting a lawyer could prejudice the jury.  The judge denied the motion citing the defense’s opening statement admitting Christensen’s guilt.  Testimony continued with the submission of financial and Google search history evidence against Christensen.
