LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A former Little Rock police officer charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy is asking a judge to throw out the case.
A trial set for next month would be the third for Josh Hastings, who prosecutors say was reckless when he fatally shot Bobby Moore in 2012. Juries couldn't reach a unanimous verdict in his previous trials.
Attorney Bill James argues for Hastings that a third trial should be blocked on constitutional grounds of due process and fundamental fairness. Prosecutors haven't yet filed a response.
