Retrial set for man in 'loud music' killing

A man convicted of attempted murder in a confrontation over loud music with an unarmed black teen won't be sentenced until after his retrial on a murder charge.

A Duval County judge made that decision Friday and also scheduled a new trial for Michael Dunn, who is white, for May 5. The case has stirred racial tensions.

Dunn had been scheduled this month to be sentenced for attempted murder and firing into a vehicle, but his attorney was concerned that statements Dunn makes at a sentencing hearing could be used against him in his second trial.

Jurors deadlocked last month on the murder charge against Dunn in the shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Prosecutors said they would retry him.
