    Officials say Bill Cosby's trial last month in suburban Philadelphia cost the local government $219,000, with more than half going toward overtime for deputies, detectives, security guards and court personnel.

    Montgomery County released a breakdown Thursday that says it racked up about $46,000 in hotel stays for jurors who were brought in from Pittsburgh to hear the case. Juror meals amounted to $14,000.

    Running a video and audio feed to an overflow courtroom added $16,000 in costs.

    The jury wasn't able to come to a verdict, and the 80-year-old Cosby is scheduled for retrial in November.
