- Retrial set on murder charge for former Phoenix cop
In September, a jury found former Phoenix Police Officer Richard Chrisman guilty of aggravated assault in the 2010 death of Phoenix resident Daniel Rodriguez, but the jurors couldn't decide on two other charges, including second-degree murder. Prosecutors will try Chrisman again on the other charges. His sentencing on the conviction is scheduled for December 20, and the retrial is scheduled to start on January 27.
