Death Penalty Not Intended in Katrina Fatal Shooting Case

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Justice Department doesn't intend to seek
the death penalty against a former New Orleans police officer
charged with fatally shooting a man in Hurricane Katrina's
aftermath.
A court filing Thursday discloses that decision in the case
against David Warren, who allegedly shot and killed 31-year-old
Henry Glover before his charred body turned up in a burned car
after the 2005 storm.
Warren and four other current and former New Orleans officers
pleaded not guilty in June to federal charges. One of the two
charges against Warren - deprivation of rights under color of law -
carries a maximum sentence of life in prison or the death penalty.
The charges against former Lt. Robert Italiano, Lt. Dwayne
Scheuermann, Lt. Travis McCabe and Officer Gregory McRae include
obstruction of justice.
