Governor Ducey is rejecting a request to reduce the prison sentence for a former Phoenix cop who killed a man in 2010.
Richard Chrisman was sentenced to seven years in prison for manslaughter in 2013 for killing an unarmed man while responding to a domestic violence call.
The Arizona Clemency Board recommended in December the governor cut the sentence to time served.
In a letter to the board yesterday, Ducey denied the commutation without explanation.
Chrisman's sentence is set to expire in September 2020.
