NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal jury is set to hear closing arguments in the retrial of a former New Orleans police officer charged with fatally shooting a man without justification outside a strip mall after Hurricane Katrina.

Jurors are expected to begin deliberating Tuesday in the case against David Warren, who shot and killed 31-year-old Henry Glover less than a week after the 2005 storm’s landfall.

Warren testified Monday that he feared for his life when he shot Glover because he thought he saw a gun in his hand.

Warren was sentenced to nearly 26 years in prison after a different jury convicted him of manslaughter in 2010. But an appeals court overturned his convictions last year, ruling Warren should have been tried separately from four officers charged in an alleged cover-up.
