Detroit police officer who killed girl during raid will face a second trial on Dec. 4.
Joseph Weekley charged with involuntary manslaughter for Aiyana Stanley-Jones' death in 2010
A judge has set a December date for a second trial for a Detroit police officer who admits he accidentally shot and killed a 7-year-old girl during a raid.
Joseph Weekley goes to trial on Dec. 4. He's charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones in May 2010.
The first trial ended in June without a verdict.

Weekley's gun went off after he stormed a Detroit home to catch a murder suspect.
Separately, Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway refused to drop a $10,000 fine slapped on WJBK-TV, known as Fox 2. A cameraman caught the faces of some jurors during the first day of trial.
WJBK attorney James Stewart calls it a "regrettable mistake." But the judge says Fox 2 is barred from her court until it pays.
