Motorcycle club member's murder trial begins again following mistrial

~Victor Amaro says shooting was self-defense~

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —A motorcycle club member, whose murder trial abruptly ended two weeks ago, will be back in court Monday morning.

A Seminole County judge declared a mistrial for Victor Amaro when prosecutors accidentally played a statement in front of jurors they were not allowed to hear.

According to court observers, the recorded statement Amaro gave to police back in 2012 included an admission that he was a convicted felon.

The judge declared a mistrial saying his criminal past is only allowed if Amaro had testified himself.

Amaro faces three counts of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder in the September 2012 shootout in Winter Springs that left three people dead.

Amaro said he opened fire in self defense.
