Government rests in burned body retrial



Federal prosecutors rested their case Thursday in the re-trial of former New Orleans Police officer David Warren.

Warren admits fatally shooting Henry Glover in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, but says it was justified.  Prosecutors presented testimony from witnesses who said Glover had done nothing threatening that would have prompted an officer to fire.

A jury convicted Warren in a previous trial, but an appeals court ruled Warren should not have been tried alongside officers the government accused of engaging in a cover-up of the circumstances of Glover's death.

Glover's body was found months after the storm, charred inside a vehicle that had been set on fire.  The burned out car was found on the river side of the Algiers levee, not far from the 4th District police station.
