Second police brutality trial for Krug delayed until July

The second trial of Buffalo Police Officer Corey Krug will be delayed a month.

Scheduled to start Wednesday, the police brutality trial was postponed Monday because of the ill health of one of the defense team's lawyers.

Jury selection in the new trial before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara will begin July 16.

Krug, who initially faced four charges involving three separate incidents, was acquitted of three of the charges and cleared of two of the incidents during a trial in February.

The jury deadlocked on the last count involving Krug's encounter with a Lackawanna man on Thanksgiving Day in 2014.

At the heart of the federal prosecution against Krug is a video of the incident shot by a WKBW photographer.
