Ex-cop who burned body again gets 17 years
NEW ORLEANS - For a second time, a former New Orleans police officer has again been sentenced to more than 17 years in prison for burning the body of a man shot to death by another New Orleans police officer in the chaotic days following Hurricane Katrina.
Gregory McRae already is imprisoned for burning Henry Glover's body. However, an appeals court had ordered a recalculation of his original 17-year sentence after one of his original convictions was thrown out.
In giving McRae the same 17-year, 3-month sentence Friday, U.S. District Judge Lance Africk said that McRae was guilty of covering up an unlawful killing by fellow Officer David Warren. Africk's assertion comes despite the fact that a jury eventually acquitted Warren in the case.
