Joe McKnight's family meets with DA
GRETNA - An attorney for the family of slain former NFL running back Joe McKnight says the player's family has met with prosecutors to discuss next steps in the legal case against his accused shooter.
Attorney George Tucker tells The New Orleans Advocate that McKnight's mother, his sister and the mother of his child met with the district attorney Tuesday.
McKnight was shot and killed Dec. 1 after a road rage accident. The man authorities say shot McKnight, Ronald Gasser, was arrested days later on a manslaughter charge. The delay in arresting Gasser angered many residents.
Gasser is currently being held on $500,000 bail and has a hearing on Dec. 21 to try to reduce the bail. Tucker called the meeting with the district attorney "informative and very encouraging."
