DOVER, N.H. (AP) - Prosecutors have decided not to retry a man on a negligent homicide charge in the crash that killed a retired New Hampshire judge in 2013.

In January a jury found 24-year-old Ryan Marchant of Wakefield, Massachusetts, not guilty of another negligent homicide charge related to intoxication in the accident in Durham.

The jury was deadlocked on the second negligent homicide charge alleging Marchant caused the death of retired Candia District Court Judge Bruce Larson of Durham by driving at an unsafe speed and passing in a no-passing zone.

Strafford County Attorney Thomas Velardi announced the decision Friday, saying there is no new evidence to present during a second trial, which was set to begin next month.

The jury convicted Marchant of aggravated driving while intoxicated related to injuries suffered by his passenger.
