LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – A new trial date has been set for the Santa Fe County Deputy accused of murdering a fellow deputy.

A judge declared a mistrial in Tai Chan’s first murder trial last week after jurors say they could not come up with a verdict.

Chan is accused of shooting and killing Jeremy Martin after a night of drinking in Las Cruces in 2014.

According to New Mexico courts, Chan’s new trial is scheduled to start November 28th in Las Cruces District Court. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
