STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - The husband of a woman who was taken hostage by three bank robbers in Stockton and killed by police in an ensuing chase and shootout will speak about the case Thursday.

Misty Holt Singh’s husband, Paul Singh, and his attorney are expected to discuss recent developments in the investigation.

Stockton police have asked an outside group to probe officers’ response to the July 16 bank robbery that ended in the death of the 41-year-old woman.

Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones on Tuesday said he has asked the non-partisan, Washington, D.C.-based Police Foundation to undertake the review.

Jones has defended officers’ decision to fire at a car while Holt-Singh was inside, saying officers were concerned the suspects would kidnap other hostages.
