Prosecutors to retry man accused of killing police officer .
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors will re-try a case against a man accused of killing a Los Angeles police officer over 30 years ago, but the incoming district attorney will not seek the death penalty again despite the family's wishes for capital punishment. Kenneth Earl Gay, 62, is charged with murder in the death of Officer Paul Verna in 1983. The California Supreme Court has twice overturned Gay’s death sentence and in February vacated his original conviction, forcing the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office to decide if it would pursue the case again.
