EL CAJON (CNS) - A man accused of fatally shooting an El Capitan High School student and dumping his body near the San Vicente Reservoir on the Barona Indian Reservation will face a retrial on murder charges, a prosecutor said Thursday.
Stanley Virgil Lloyd, 20, is accused in the October 2010 death of 17-year-old Christopher Carioscia of Lakeside. The defendant faces 50 years to life in prison if convicted.
A mistrial was declared Monday when jurors told a judge that they were deadlocked 10-2 for guilty on a charge of first-degree murder.
Carioscia went missing on Oct. 26, 2010, after telling his family he was going surfing in Pacific Beach. His burned-out car was found the next day on the tribal grounds south of Ramona, and on Dec. 4, detectives found his body near the San Vicente Reservoir.
Lloyd was arrested at his Lakeside home in March. A friend of the defendant told detectives that Lloyd grew tired of buying the anxiety prescription drug Xanax from Carioscia and hatched a plan to steal drugs from the victim and kill him, prosecutor David Williams III alleged.
Sheriff's authorities said Carioscia was shot several times with a .357-caliber handgun sometime between the evening of Oct. 26, 2010, and the morning of Oct. 27, 2010.
Lloyd will be back in court Jan. 18 for his case to be assigned to a courtroom.
