Defense Attorneys for St. Anthony Officer Want to Act Out Fatal Shooting of Castile
The state may argue against the admissibility of the exhibit
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Attorneys for the St. Anthony officer accused of fatally shooting an unarmed black man during a traffic stop say they want to use the victim’s driving record as evidence.
Court documents show defense attorneys for Officer Jeronimo Yanez want to use Philando Castile’s driving record as well as his arrest record in the trial for their client.
The state may argue against the admissibility of the exhibit.
The attorneys are also asking Yanez be allowed to act out the shooting during the trial.
Yanez is charged with second-degree manslaughter in the 2016 shooting in Falcon Heights.
