A mistrial was declared in the Lester Jones case, on Friday. 
 
Jones is accused of  kidnapping and murdering, Grand Junction mother of three, Paige Birgfeld in 2007.
 
According to the jury, nine of the twelve jurors felt Jones was guilty, while two others did not, and one remained undecided. 
 
Members of the jury addressed media, Friday afternoon, with the family of Paige Birgfeld present to discuss how they reached a final verdict.
 
Those who chose to speak say, although all jurors felt Jones was guilty there was still not enough evidence to make a conviction.
 
“We kept referring to a slice of cheese. Swiss cheese, to the other two people who voted not guilty. Just said, yes yes, there are holes in this case, there are. But there are also, in a slice of cheese, there are also lines of cheese that still make the slice. And there are still 3 or 4 things here that make him, a viable suspect and guilty,” juror Judd Swihart said. 
 
Newchannel 5’s Mallory Pearson was in the courtroom and says when members of the jury spoke,  you could see the emotion they felt about the verdict of a mistrial, and how difficult it was to talk about the process.
 
“Very emotional towards the end. Very emotional. Aggravation, I mean, people cried in deliberations. I mean there were people that cried because it was to that point. We had exhausted everything. We went through every single thing, every piece of that evidence that we were given,” jury member Bobbi Sanabria said. 
 
Some members of the jury say they want to see Jones on the stand again, and are hoping for justice to eventually be served in this case.   
 
Jurors say they even plan to continue following this case, because they want to know the truth for Birgfeld and her family.
