The shooting that shocked Falcon Heights and the rest of the world

Since Castile’s death on July 6, 2016, the accused police officer, Jeronimo Yanez, pleaded not guilty to second-degree manslaughter.

In Feb. 2017, Judge William H. Leary III denied a defense request to drop all charges against Yanez.

The trial date is scheduled for May 30.
