FILE - In this Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016 file photo, Sallie Chapman's tears are wiped away as she talks about the loss of her son, William Chapman II, prior to the sentencing of former police officer Stephen Rankin in Portsmouth, Va. Rankin was sentenced in October to 2½ years in prison for fatally shooting the unarmed 18-year-old while responding to a shoplifting call outside a Wal-Mart on April 22, 2015. Prosecutors allege Rankin killed Chapman "willfully, deliberately and with premeditation." Chapman's body was reportedly delivered to the medical examiner with handcuffs still bound behind his back. Some witnesses said Chapman was combative, and one said he knocked away Rankin's stun gun. Rankin, who is white, was fired. (Vicki Cronis-Nohe/The Virginian-Pilot via AP)
