Jury selection is underway in the new trial for former NOPD officer David Warren, who was convicted of shooting Henry Glover to death in the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina.

Nearly a year ago the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed two guilty verdicts for Warren. Defense attorneys argued Warren should not have been tried alongside other officers charged with covering up the shooting by burning Glover’s body.

Warren is now being re-tried alone.  The case is expected to last about two weeks.
