NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -Jayson Williams' defense team will get access to additional details about a racial slur uttered by an investigator in the manslaughter case against the former NBA star.
In a ruling Tuesday, two state appellate judges sided with defense attorneys who sought documents related to the slur. One of the three judges dissented.
The Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office says the slur was made in 2002 by a senior officer who did not testify at Williams' first trial and has since retired.
Williams was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter in 2004 but convicted on four counts of trying to cover up the 2002 shooting of a hired driver. The jury deadlocked on a reckless manslaughter count.
