ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A hearing has been scheduled for a judge to decide whether two current and former Albuquerque police officers will stand trial in the 2014 fatal shooting of a homeless man.

The preliminary hearing for Officer Dominique Perez and former Detective Keith Sandy in the killing of James Boyd will be held Aug. 3.

A judge will hear testimony and then decide whether there is sufficient evidence to bind the men over for trial.

Special prosecutor Randi McGinn has requested additional testing to address defense attorneys’ question about which of the two officers fired the third shot into Boyd’s back that may have killed him during an hourlongs standoff.

McGinn expects to announce her charging decision after the test results come back in a few weeks.
