CENTRAL ISLIP -

A judge has declared a mistrial in the stabbing death of a Central Islip man.

Christopher James, of Binghamton, was charged in the 2010 killing of Kevin Pierson in Pierson's Central Islip apartment.

During the trial this week, a juror got sick and was unable to continue.

The judge then declared the mistrial when neither James nor his attorney would allow a substitute juror to step in.
