    Chicago’s onetime political power couple appears to be a couple no more.

    Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has filed for divorce from his wife, former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson, after 25 years of marriage, Cook County court records show.

    Jackson Jr. filed a certificate of dissolution of marriage on Monday, according to the county’s electronic court docket. Citing “irreconcilable differences” with his wife, he began the proceedings to divorce in Cook County in July, as Sandi Jackson was wrapping up a prison term she completed in October.

    A South Carolina judge on Monday declared a mistrial after a jury deadlocked on whether white former police officer Michael Slager committed murder in the April 2015 shooting death of black motorist Walter Scott.

    The jury, which deliberated over four days, said it was unable to reach a unanimous decision on the murder charge or a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.
