Police Officer Appeals Decision Against Moving his Trial


A police officer who was charged with manslaughter in a fatal shooting of a black motorist is appealing a judge’s decision against moving his trail out of Ramsey County. Attorneys of St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez have asked the Minnesota Court of Appeals to change the ruling. The defense claims biased media coverage won’t give Latino man Yanez a fair trial in Ramsey County. Prosecutors have said moving the May 30th trial wouldn’t achieve anything due to received widespread publicity.
