JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A man accused of killing a teenager during an argument over loud music is expected back in court for a pretrial hearing in Jacksonville.

The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1nt6QHo) reports Circuit Judge Russell Healey is scheduled to check the status of the case Monday and set at least one more hearing date before jury selection begins Sept. 22.

Jurors deadlocked in February on whether Michael Dunn was guilty of killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Georgia. He was convicted on three counts of attempted murder for shooting at three others in the car with Davis in November 2012.

Witnesses said Dunn complained that the music coming from the teens' vehicle was too loud, sparking an argument. Dunn claimed self-defense and said he fired into the vehicle because he feared Davis had a weapon.
