Prosecution rests in trial of an officer charged in shooting
The prosecution has finished presenting evidence in the trial of a white Kansas City police officer charged with fatally shooting a Black man in a case that rests on arguments that police planted evidence.
Crime scene technicians and a roommate were among the witnesses to testify Tuesday in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Eric DeValkenaere.
He also is charged with armed criminal action in the death of 26-year-old Cameron Lamb, who was parking a pickup truck in his backyard when he was shot.
Officers went to Lamb’s home in December 2019 while investigating a report that a pickup was seen chasing a car after a crash.
