• Decision delayed in loud music killing sentencing

    Updated:

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A judge in Jacksonville is postponing until Friday a decision on whether he will sentence a Brevard County man convicted of attempted murder during a confrontation over loud music ahead of the 47-year-old software developer's retrial on first-degree murder.

    Jurors deadlocked last month on a first-degree murder charge for Michael Dunn in the shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Prosecutors have vowed to retry him on the count.

    Dunn's attorney on Monday asked that sentencing be postponed until after the second trial. Defense attorney Cory Strolla says he is concerned that statements Dunn makes at a sentencing hearing could be used against him in his second trial.

    Strolla says he is stepping down as Dunn's attorney and asked Judge Russell Healey to appoint public defenders.
