NEW ORLEANS - A federal appeals court has scheduled a hearing for the case against three former New Orleans police officers convicted of charges stemming from a man's fatal shooting and burning of his body in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.

A three-judge panel from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear arguments on both sides of the case on July 11.

A jury in 2010 convicted former officer David Warren of gunning down 31-year-old Henry Glover and found another former officer, Gregory McRae, guilty of burning Glover's body in a car. Both are appealing their convictions.

The 5th Circuit also will review a judge's decision to order a new trial for Travis McCabe, who was convicted of participating in a cover-up of the shooting.
