Retrial for Former North Charleston Officer Michael Slager Scheduled for March

A mistrial was declared earlier this month in the murder trial against Slager.

After the ruling, Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said, "While I cannot overstate our disappointment that this case was not resolved, I commend those who sacrificed so much time, energy and effort to serve on this jury." Wilson also addressed the Scott family, saying she was "grateful for their patience, understanding and cooperation with us."

Slager was accused of killing Scott, who was unarmed, at a traffic stop on April 4, 2015 in North Charleston, SC while Slager was an officer with the city's police department.

Video from the encounter appears to show the moment Slager fatally shot Scott as he ran away. The video garnered national attention and propelled Slager into the spotlight.
