Trial winds down in Katrina police shooting case

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A jury will hear closing arguments in the trial for five current and former New Orleans police officers charged in the fatal shooting and burning of a man's body after Hurricane Katrina.

Up to eight hours of closing arguments are expected Monday before jurors begin deliberating Tuesday.

The jury of seven women and five men heard 12 days of testimony about the death of 31-year-old Henry Glover.

A former officer, David Warren, is charged with shooting Glover without justification outside a strip mall on Sept. 2, 2005. Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann and Officer Gregory McRae are charged with burning his body. Lt. Travis McCabe and former Lt. Robert Italiano are charged with writing and submitting a false report on the shooting.
