LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) A Lancaster County judge has declared a mistrial in the assault case of an inmate accused of punching a prison guard in the face.

Timothy Schrader, 40, does not deny punching the guard, but has maintained that he did so to protect himself after he learned of a plan by other inmates to stab him.

Jurors began deliberating the case Friday morning, and by late Saturday afternoon came back deadlocked.
