HAHNVILLE - The sheriff in Louisiana's St. Charles Parish says the suspect in the June shooting death of a New Orleans-area law enforcement officer has received much of the medical testing requested by defense attorneys.

Nineteen-year-old Jerman Neveaux was arrested after the death of Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Deputy David Michel. A video shows Neveaux being struck several times during the arrest and a later photo showed him with facial injuries.

Neveaux is being held in St. Charles Parish. The New Orleans Advocate reports that Sheriff Greg Champagne said Tuesday that Neveaux has gotten all of the CT scans recommended by the defense, though not the recommended steroid treatments or physical therapy.

Defense attorney Martin Regan said the steroids and therapy are needed to treat Neveaux's injuries
