ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former Santa Fe County sheriff’s deputy accused of killing a fellow deputy will be retried in April.

KOAT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2d1R0aw ) that Tai Chan’s original retrial was set for Nov. 28 but now it is slated to run April 3-14.

Chan’s first trial ended in a mistrial in June.

He had been charged with first-degree murder in fellow deputy Jeremy Martin’s death.

The two 29-year-old deputies were in Las Cruces the night of the shooting in October 2014, staying at a hotel after transporting prisoners to Arizona.

Martin died of his injuries at a hospital. Chan’s attorneys say the shooting was in self-defense.
