DA drops Yang case

The Del Norte District Attorney’s Office will not be retrying a local man whose attempted murder case was declared a mistrial last week.

Sou Feng Yang, 19, was accused of bashing the skull of Robert Davis Jr. with a hammer during a dispute outside Davis’ house in April.

District Attorney Jon Alexander said he made the decision after reviewing the case and speaking with jurors after the trial.

“I am convinced a subsequent trial could not result in a guilty verdict,” said Alexander.

The trial itself was marred by inconsistent witness testimony and an adversarial witness, resulting in several delays that caused the anticipated three-day trial to carry into a fourth day.
