Walter Scott shooting

A judge has scheduled the retrial for ex-Charleston cop Michael Slager in the shooting death of Walter Scott for March 1 after a mistrial was declared when a deadlocked jury didn't reach a unanimous decision .

Michael Slager testified in his own defense on Tuesday, getting grilled by prosecutors in the high-profile murder trial in the death of Walter Scott, an unarmed black man who was shot five times.

Micheal Slager, the ex-cop who shot Walter Scott, asks the court to drop his murder charge. The defense team cites double-jeopardy.
