Jurors in the Pickaway County murder trial reached a decision, Monday: not guilty and no verdict.

Brent Cox, who was accused of being the gunman in the fatal shooting of Rodney Metcalf last October, has been exonerated on 3 of the 4 murder charges; however, jurors decided on a mistrial on a murder count, as well as, the counts of aggravated robbery and petty theft.

It's now up to the prosecution to decide whether to pursue another trial on the three undecided counts.

Earlier, Don Shepard pleaded guilty to his role on related charges of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated robbery. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his participation in the attempt to steal cash and drugs from Metcalf.

They will be holding him until the prosecutors have another trial with another set of jurors...I was there through most of it and those jurors were a joke...some were falling asleep through most of it and they got to go home for the weekend which should never had happen.

I think Shepard did it too, and he will be out in 16 years.. WOW. Shep has been a lost cause and soul for many years. I believe he set Brent up and that there are another person invovled. But I doubt that will ever come up. and also wth where is the gun??????

It isn't over for Brent yet,but it is evident that ours payers are workng. I am also praying for Rodney Metcalfe's family, they lost a brother, son, and a loveone, and most of all a father to children, but the police sought justice by accusing the wrong man, when they new that they had the man who did it all along, but they were just too lazy to actually do their jobs, and chose the potentially easier (victim, Brent Cox) on the testimony of one person Donald Sheppard (give me a break)Just goes to show that the cops in Circleville once again failed to do thier jobs, and went after the wrong man or messed up the evidence so badly, that even the Judge was appauled. What ever happened in the $5 Annie murder? Point made! Do your jobs Circleville Police!!!!!!
really confused lol

I hope it's over soon, and the whole truth comes out. yes he was set up. this is a fact. he did not kill rodney r anyone else. shep told him who took a hit out on him and also told him his so called loving wife was screwing around on him. her mom even bought one of the trucks that use to belong to rodney for a trophy. she has never once been touched when the drug raids hit. wonder why? she is related to dwight radcliff for one thing.people open your eyes , the ones in the south end need to speak up and tell the truth for once in your lives.make your self proud for doing the right thing and stop letting other people , tell you what to do, when you know in your heart, you all know right from wrong. Do SomeTHING RIGHT FOR ONC IN YOUR LIVES. TELL THE TRUTH !!!
