A judge has reduced a charge against a man accused of killing an off-duty Gretna police officer during a New Orleans Bourbon Street fight to manslaughter.

Authorities say detective Brett Thomas died after being hit in the head during a brawl June 27 after an argument. A judge reduced the charge against 20-year-old Joshua Miner from second-degree murder to manslaughter after hearing arguments Thursday.

Miner turned himself in Sept. 1 after police searched for him months in Texas and Louisiana.

The Times-Picayune reported that Miner's bond was reduced from $1 million to $350,000. A probable cause hearing has been set for Oct. 31.
