A jury could not reach a verdict in the case of a teen accused of crashing into and killing a Boca Raton woman.

As a result, the judge declared a mistrial in the case against 16-year-old Wesley Brown.

During testimony, Brown admitted to driving the stolen car that hit and killed Wendy Harris-Aceves in 2015.
   
Police were following the car at the time.

Brown said he didn't stop because a passenger in the car threatened to kill him.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Brown will be retried in February.
