Mistrial for Tucson man accused in beating death

TUCSON, Ariz. — The trial of a Tucson man accused of fatally beating his
girlfriend with a crowbar last year has ended in a mistrial.

Pima County Superior Court jurors couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict Tuesday in
the case of 49-year-old Arnold Mills Granillo.

He was accused of second-degree murder in the September 2012 death of Kimberly
Tsonetokoy.

Prosecutors say the 45-year-old Tsonetokoy was beaten on the head, face and
body with the steel crowbar.

Granillo’s lawyer says his client acted in a passionate rage when he learned
Tsonetokoy planned to leave him after they lived together for nearly a decade.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that a status
conference to determine where the case goes next has been set for Jan. 13.
