NEW ORLEANS - A trial for five current or former New Orleans police officers charged in a man's death after Hurricane Katrina is on hold for two days while the judge tends to a family medical emergency.

The trial will resume Wednesday morning.

A jury has heard two days of testimony about the Sept. 2, 2005, shooting death of Henry Glover.

A former officer, David Warren, is charged with gunning down Glover outside a strip mall.

Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann and Officer Gregory McRae are accused of burning Glover's body. 

Former Lt. Robert Italiano and McCabe are accused of falsifying a report to make it appear Glover's shooting was justified.
