Prosecutors plan to seek a retrial of a former Phoenix police officer convicted last month of aggravated assault after the jury failed to reach verdicts on charges of second-degree murder and animal cruelty.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez told a judge Friday his office will retry Richard Chrisman on the two counts.

Chrisman's sentencing on the aggravated assault charge was delayed Friday.

Chrisman was charged after he fatally shot 29-year-old Danny Rodriguez and the man's dog during an October 2010 domestic violence call. Chrisman's partner says the man wasn't a threat when Chrisman shot him. Chrisman said he only fired his weapon after Rodriguez tried to attack him.

Chrisman, a nine-year veteran of the force, was later fired. He could face up to 15 years in prison for the aggravated assault conviction.
