NEW ORLEANS – Jury deliberations are expected to resume Wednesday in the trial of five current and former New Orleans police officers charged in the death of a man who was fatally shot before his body was burned in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.
Jurors deliberated for roughly eight hours Tuesday after U.S. District Judge Lance Africk read them instructions.
A former officer, David Warren, is charged with shooting Henry Glover, 31, without justification outside a strip mall on Sept. 2, 2005.
Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann and Officer Gregory McRae are charged with burning Glover's body and beating men who brought the dying man to a makeshift police compound seeking help.
Lt. Travis McCabe and former Lt. Robert Italiano are charged with writing and submitting a false report on the shooting.
