(St. Paul, MN) — The Minnesota Supreme Court is throwing out the murder conviction of a cop convicted of killing a woman four years ago. Former Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor was serving a more-than-decade-long prison sentence on charges including third-degree murder, but the court threw that out due to “insufficient” evidence. Instead, he’ll be sentenced again on a manslaughter charge for the 2017 death of Justine Damond. She died after being shot in an alley after approaching a squad car.
