ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A jury in the trial of a New Jersey detective charged with murder in the slaying of a driver during an alleged road-rage incident is set to resume deliberations.
Forty-one-year-old Joseph Walker, an investigator for the Hudson County, New Jersey, prosecutor’s office, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 36-year-old Joseph Harvey of Landsdowne.
Prosecutors say Walker shot Harvey after the two pulled over in Millersville on June 8, 2013 after some traffic jostling. Walker’s lawyers have said their client thought he, his wife and three children were in danger when he fired his gun.
The Anne Arundel County Circuit court jury will continue deliberations Wednesday morning. They had deliberated for about three hours after getting the case on Tuesday.
