Lawyer: Slain former NFL player’s family meets with DA

GRETNA, La. – An attorney for the family of slain former NFL running back Joe McKnight, says the player of the family has met with prosecutors to talk about the next steps in the trial against his accused shooter.

Lawyer George Tucker tells The New Orleans Advocate (http://bit.ly/2gKX9uj ) McKnight’s mother, his sister and the mother of his child to be complied with by the prosecutor Tuesday.

McKnight was shot and killed Dec. 1 after a road rage accident. The man authorities say shot McKnight, Ronald Gasser, was arrested days later on murder charges. The delay in the arrest of Gasser upset many residents.

Gasser is currently on $500,000 bail and has a hearing on Dec. 21 to try to reduce the bail. Tucker called the meeting with the district attorney “informative and very encouraging.”
