A mistrial has been declared in a case involving the death of a Prince George's County police officer in a car crash.

The state's attorney's office says the mistrial was declared after a juror emailed the judge to say she couldn't judge another person based on her religious beliefs.

Prosecutors say the juror didn't mention anything about those religious beliefs during the jury selection process.

The case involved Kevon Neal who was on trial for motor vehicle manslaughter in the death of Officer Adrian Morris in 2012.

Police say Morris was pursuing a car driven by Neal after an attempted vehicle break-in at a gas station in Laurel.

Morris lost control of his car during the chase and was thrown from the vehicle. He died from severe head trauma.
