New Retrial Dates Set for Ex-Cops in Katrina Case
A federal judge has rescheduled the retrials of two former New Orleans police officers charged in the fatal shooting of a man whose body was burned in a car in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.
A retrial is scheduled to start Aug. 26 for David Warren, who shot and killed 31-year-old Henry Glover outside a strip mall less than a week after the 2005 storm.
A retrial for Travis McCabe, who is charged with writing a false report on Glover's shooting, is set to start Sept. 23.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a retrial for Warren in December, ruling he should have been tried separately from four other officers charged in Glover's 2005 death.
U.S. District Judge Lance Africk ordered a retrial for McCabe based on newly discovered evidence.
