TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa County's District Attorney announced a fourth murder trial for the former Tulsa police officer Shannon Kepler.

He's accused of shooting and killing his daughter's boyfriend, 19-year-old Jeremey Lake.

All three juries in the past trials have not been able to agree on a verdict, ending in mistrials.

The most recent jury was split six and six.

Kepler's attorney says a fourth trial is a waste of time.

"It is a waste of taxpayers' money. The jury split is moving towards Mr. Kepler and I don't - unless he does something with a new judge, I don't see it happening," said Attorney Richard O'Carroll.

DA Steven Kunzweiler says both Kepler and Lake's family deserve a verdict in the case.
