He says a decision has not been made to send the case to a third trial.60-year-old Pilkinton is accused of shooting and killing her husband, 62-year-old Morris Pilkinton, Junior. 

She went on trial in December, but it ended in a hung jury.  She did not take the stand.

Her daughter, Stacy Player, says Pilkinton remains in custody.
