TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa judge has ordered that all funds from a fundraising campaign started after Terence Crutcher was fatally shot by a police officer be placed in Crutcher’s estate.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/2eRyphR ) reports that district judge Kurt Glassco issued the order Wednesday, telling attorney Austin Bond, the special administrator of Crutcher’s estate, to obtain the $150,000 in proceeds collected through GoFundMe.com.

The judge says the funds must be provided as soon as possible to the estate in case anyone, like a creditor, has a financial claim to make.

Police officer Betty Jo Shelby has been charged with first-degree manslaughter in the September shooting of the 40-year-old unarmed black man. Shelby, who is white, has pleaded not guilty.
