    KY - Michael Newby, 19, shot to death, police officer charged, 3 Jan 2004

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A black teenager who was fatally shot by a white police officer has been charged posthumously with drug and weapons offences.

    Michael Newby, 19, was charged Monday with trafficking in a controlled substance, assault and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, nearly three months after he was shot outside a liquor store. Newby was the seventh black man killed by police in the past five years in Louisville. The Jan. 3 shooting prompted a series of protests. Maj. Troy Riggs said Louisville police had to file formal charges because federal regulations require updated crime reports.

    "We do it to meet federal regulations and to clear out that case," Riggs said

    Newby was shot and killed by former Louisville Officer McKenzie Mattingly after an undercover drug deal went bad. Newby was shot three times in the back...

    Mattingly, an undercover narcotics detective, was fired after he was indicted on a murder charge, but a jury later acquitted him during a high-profile trial in September 2004.
