Motion: New DA should consider retrial in police shooting

Randi McGinn filed motions on Wednesday asking a judge for rulings that would allow 2nd Judicial District DA-elect Raul Torrez to decide if Dominique Perez and Keith Sandy should be retried.

A judge declared a mistrial Oct. 14 after a jury deadlocked over whether to convict Perez and Sandy in the death of James Boyd.

The officers fatally shot the 38-year-old Boyd after an hours-long standoff in the Sandia Mountain foothills in 2014. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
