A Muskogee County drug trafficking case against Marc Cox ended in a hung jury this week after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision.

Cox was charged with trafficking in illegal drugs after a traffic stop a year ago of a car he was riding in with two other people, Joel Yandell and Kaitlyn Pickel.

According to prosecutors, a box containing a one-gallon ziplock bag full of methamphetamine was found underneath Pickel’s seat in the back of the car. Body camera footage revealed Pickel telling the officer he needed a “warrant to look inside my box.”

According to Cox’s attorney, Steve Money, Pickel claimed ownership of the box at least five times in that footage.

Though the other two defendants apparently accepted plea deals, Cox contended he knew nothing about the contents of the box and took his case to trial. Money argued that there was no evidence Cox knew what was in the box, that he didn’t have control of the box and merely being close to the box was not enough to convict him of possession of it.

“There were a lot of moving parts on this,” Money said, “which I think is reflected in the jury unable to reach a unanimous verdict.”

Cox will face a new trial after a disposition docket on April 26.
