CHICAGO (AP) - A former Chicago police detective acquitted in the off-duty killing of an unarmed black woman is seeking disability pay.

The Chicago Tribune reports (https://trib.in/2eK9vmj ) that Dante Servin argues he continues to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder from the fatal 2012 shooting of 22-year-old Rekia Boyd. He could get tens of thousands of dollars until his police pension kicks in. A police pension board attorney says the first step is for the board to decide if Servin qualifies for disability pay.

Servin was charged with involuntary manslaughter and other charges in Boyd’s shooting death but a judge acquitted him, suggesting prosecutors filed the wrong charges.

Five months ago Servin resigned just days before a hearing to decide if he should be fired in connection with the shooting death.
