No verdict on baseball bat wielding Uni student
The Canberra University student accused of trying to kill his classmates and tutor with a baseball bat will likely face a re-trial next year after the jury failed to reach a verdict. Alex Ophel has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental impairment to five counts of attempted murder.
 
The jury deliberated for 21 hours over almost 3 days before being formally discharged after failing to reach a unanimous decision.
