Baltimore – Eleven of twelve jurors wanted to convict Travers and Tremayne Johnson for the cruelty inflicted on Phoenix, the Pitbull who was was doused in gasoline and set on fire in 2009. The twelfth juror held out on reasonable doubt. Therefore, a mistrial was declared. Unless the State’s Attorney decides to retry the case, there will be no justice for Phoenix. Polite requests for a retrial can be made here:
