New Katrina burned body trials set for March
By JANET McCONNAUGHEY, Associated Press | January 22, 2013 | Updated: January 22, 2013 5:55pm

NEW ORLEANS (AP) News trials are set for March for an ex-New Orleans police officer accused of killing a man after Hurricane Katrina and the ex-lieutenant accused of covering it up.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Lance Africk set a March 18 trial for David Warren, who was a rookie when prosecutors say he shot 31-year-old Henry Glover on Sept. 2, 2005. Africk set a March 11 trial date for Travis McCabe, who was accused of doctoring a police report to make it appear that Warren was justified.

Africk also scheduled a hearing July 25 to resentence Gregory McRae, who was convicted of setting fire to the car in which Glover's body was found. His conviction on a related civil rights charge was overturned.

A federal appeals court overturned Warren's conviction in December, saying he should have been tried separately from officers accused of the cover-up.
