(CROWN POINT) - A northern Indiana judge has declared a mistrial in a Gary man's triple murder trial after the court ran out of potential jurors.

The Times of Munster reports a Lake County judge approved a defense motion for a mistrial Wednesday during the 15th day of jury selection in 46-year-old David Isom's murder case.

The jury count had been stalled at nine for several days. The judge told Isom he could proceed with a nine-person jury, but Isom declined.

Prosecutors and Isom's attorney declined to comment.

Isom is charged with killing his 40-year-old wife, Cassandra, and her two teenage children in August 2007. Prosecutors contend Isom killed his family after his wife threatened to leave him at a time when he was unemployed and facing mounting debts.
