Reserve Deputy to Stand Trial for Stun Gun Killing

A judge has ruled that a former volunteer sheriff’s deputy in Oklahoma who says he confused his handgun and stun gun when he shot and killed an unarmed, restrained man will face a jury trial in February. Robert Bates pleaded not guilty to second-degree manslaughter charges during his district court arraignment in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Monday when he was bound over for trial.
