Ex-officer's resentencing set for July

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A former New Orleans police officer has a new sentencing date for burning the body of a man shot by another officer in the days following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Currently, Gregory McCrae is serving a 17-year federal sentence imposed in 2010 on charges connected to the burning of Henry Glover's body. However an appeals court overturned one of the four counts on which he was convicted and ordered re-sentencing.

On Tuesday, McCrae's June 19 re-sentencing date was delayed until July 7. McCrae had requested a delay.

Earlier this week, a federal judge rejected McCrae's motion for a new trial.
