BRANDON, Miss. (AP) - A jury has found a Mississippi prosecutor not guilty of robbery but could not agree to a verdict on a stalking charge.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith was on trial in Rankin County.

News outlets report that the aggravated stalking charge against Smith ended with a hung jury Wednesday night.

Attorney General Jim Hood's office prosecuted the case, which was tied to a 2015 incident between Smith and Smith's former girlfriend. The robbery charge dealt with Smith taking the woman's handgun.
