ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Prosecutors will have to decide by next month if they will retry two former Albuquerque police officers in the death of a homeless man.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2dWcpWQ) that State District Judge Alisa Hadfield’s office issued notice Friday that she will conduct a status hearing Nov. 14 on the criminal prosecution of Dominique Perez and Keith Sandy.

A judge declared a mistrial Tuesday after jurors deadlocked over whether to convict them in the death of James Boyd.

The officers fatally shot the 38-year-old Boyd after an hours-long standoff in the Sandia Mountain foothills in 2014.

The jury listened to 12 days of testimony.

It was not immediately clear if attorney Randi McGinn, who was appointed as a special prosecutor for the case, would continue in the case.
