Today, Utah Assistant Attorney General Craig Peterson completed final arguments in the negligent homicide trial of 54-year-old Jana Clyde of Duchesne. Clyde, previously a nurse at the Duchesne County Jail, was charged after an inmate in her care died of dehydration after five days at the jail.
In June 2022, a jury considered the case and was unable to reach a verdict. Eighth District Judge Don M. Torgerson declared a mistrial after the jury deadlocked after about 10 hours of deliberation.
Judge Torgerson will consider the case and issue a verdict within 30 days.
