Judge: Jury can consider lesser charge against ex-officer

08 Juillet 2017

In previous trials, some jurors took issue with convicting Kepler on that specific charge.

Two juries could not reach a decision as prosecutors tried Shannon Kepler for the 2014 shooting death of Jeremy Lake. Kepler told investigators he fired because he thought Lake had a gun.

A judge says jurors can consider a lesser charge in the trial of a former Oklahoma police officer who fatally shot his daughter's black boyfriend while off-duty.

Deal reached between Blue Cross and Children's Hospitals and Clinics
All of that was in the past the parties said during a news conference Friday in Minneapolis. Blue Cross accused Children's of being an unreasonably expensive health care provider.

Deliberations began Friday afternoon in the third trial of Shannon Kepler after a judge ruled that jurors could consider a lesser charge of manslaughter in addition to a charge of first-degree murder.

Manslaughter in the heat of passion comes with a sentence of four years to life.

Authorities say Kepler shot 19-year-old Jeremey Lake in 2014 after Lake started dating Kepler's then-18-year-old daughter.
