A Carlsbad jury is hung over Senovio Mendoza's case.

EL PASO, Texas -

A Carlsbad jury couldn't decide how to convict a man who posed as a police officer to break into a man's house. The homeowner was shot dead.

Senovio Mendoza was accused of dressing up as law enforcement with two other men in September 2012. They allegedly kicked open the door of Tim Wallace's home looking for drugs.

Wallace, 50, was shot in the head. One of the men involved was convicted of first-degree murder. The other entered a plea agreement.

Mendoza's attorney says his client must now prepare for a retrial for first-degree murder.
