(Wall Street Journal) — A former New Orleans police officer was convicted Thursday of fatally shooting a man in Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath and another officer was convicted of burning the man’s body. A federal jury also convicted a third officer of writing a false report on the deadly shooting of 31-year-old Henry Glover. Two others were acquitted of charges stemming from the alleged cover-up. The jury of five men and seven women convicted former officer David Warren of manslaughter in the shooting death of 31-year-old Henry Glover outside a strip mall on Sept. 2, 2005. Prosecutors said Mr. Warren shot an unarmed man in the back.
