Kim Potter faces first and second-degree manslaughter charges.
Welcome to our coverage of the Kim Potter manslaughter trial over the April 11, 2021 shooting death of Duante Wright in a suburb of Minneapolis, when then-police officer Potter accidentally used her Glock 17 pistol in place of her intended Taser. Today we anticipate the start of jury selection.

Know the law so you’re hard to convict.
