A federal judge said Thursday that the "appropriate underlying offense" for the former South Carolina police officer who killed unarmed black man Walter Scott is second-degree murder and suggested a sentence of 19 to 24 years in prison.
Former South Carolina officer Michael Slager fought the unarmed suspect on the ground and warned, "Let go of the Taser before I shoot you," a forensic witness testified Tuesday, attempting to back the ex-cop's claim the man had reached for his stun gun.
