Detroit police officer who killed girl in raid to face a second trial on Dec. 4.

A judge has set a December date for the second trial of a Detroit police officer who admits he accidentally shot and killed a 7-year-old girl during a raid.

Joseph Weekley is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones in May 2010. The first trial ended in June without a verdict. The second trial begins Dec. 4.

Weekley's gun went off in a raid on a Detroit home to catch a murder suspect.

Separately, Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway refused to drop a $10,000 fine slapped on WJBK-TV, known as Fox 2. A cameraman caught the faces of some jurors during the first day of trial.

WJBK attorney James Stewart calls it a "regrettable mistake." The judge says Fox 2 is barred from her court until it pays.
