NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A judge has signed an order involving details into how evidence in the Walter Scott murder case will be independently tested.

The defense wants Michael Slager's taser and uniform tested from the day he shot and killed Walter Scott during a traffic stop last April.

The defense and the state have agreed that the testing must be done by Feb. 12, and if anything is lost or destroyed, the state can use that information in court.
