Chan turned himself in late Friday night and pleaded no guilty Monday.

Chan is accused of killing a fellow deputy in 2014. 

Two murder trials ended in hung juries.

Last month, a judge dismissed manslaughter charges against Chan. The judge said the DA did not follow court procedures when filing the documentation.

Chan has maintained he shot Jeremy Martin in an act of self-defense after a night of drinking.
