Mistrial for Tucson man accused in beating death

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The trial of a Tucson man accused of fatally beating his girlfriend with a crowbar last year has ended in a mistrial.

Pima County Superior Court jurors couldn't reach a unanimous verdict Tuesday in the case of 49-year-old Arnold Mills Granillo.

He was accused of second-degree murder in the September 2012 death of Kimberly Tsonetokoy.

Prosecutors say the 45-year-old Tsonetokoy was beaten on the head, face and body with the steel crowbar.

Granillo's lawyer says his client acted in a passionate rage when he learned Tsonetokoy planned to leave him after they lived together for nearly a decade.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that a status conference to determine where the case goes next has been set for Jan. 13.
