CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The district attorney in Carson City says he'll retry a man now on parole after 20 years in prison for a conviction that was overturned by a federal court because he was 14 at the time of the slaying.
District Attorney Jason Woodbury told the Nevada Appeal he's not sure he'll seek a new prison sentence for Peter Quinn Elvik.
But Woodbury says Elvik's felony conviction shouldn't completely vacated.
Elvik is now 36. He was convicted in 1996 of shooting William Gibson and stealing Gibson's weapons and car in August 1995.
The conviction was overturned in December 2013 by a three-judge U.S. District Court panel that said the trial judge failed to instruct jurors that because Elvik was 14, he was presumed not to understand his actions were wrong.
Woodbury says a new trial could begin by next March.
