LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors say they will retry the case of a Los Angeles firefighter accused of beating a woman last year in a neighborhood dispute over the feeding of stray cats.

A jury deadlocked last month on the felony battery and assault charges filed against 38-year-old Ian Justin Eulian. Jurors also said they never voted on a lesser charge against his mother.

The case stemmed from a September 2013 altercation arising from a dispute over a neighbor’s habit of feeding stray cats.

At a hearing Thursday, the prosecution informed the judge that the case will be retried.
