There’s been a delay in the jury trial of two Winnipeg police officers.
Closing arguments were to begin today in the trial of Const. Darrel Keith Selley and Const. Kristopher John Overwater. Those arguments will now begin at 9:30 Tuesday morning.
Members of the jury were sent home just before noon.
The media cannot report details about the cause of the delay.
Selley is charged with attempted murder using a firearm and criminal negligence causing bodily harm in the shooting of Kristofer Shaun Fournier on July 16, 2007.
He and Const. Kristopher John Overwater have pleaded not guilty to intending to wound Fournier by firing a Glock .40 –calibre handgun, aggravated assault and obstruction of justice.
A bullet hit Fournier, 23, in his buttocks after three other shots missed him. He earlier testified he was shot after leading police on a high-speed chase because he was high on meth and had cocaine on him.
