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.

Because of a recent accident, the traffic signal at the intersection of Mills Park and Highway 183 will be operating on a flashing red light until repairs are completed.

"We are asking that everyone use extreme caution in this area," she said.
This intersection will be considered a four-way stop and requires all drivers to make a complete stop before proceeding through.
