NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

Michael Slager's attorneys ask for several discovery items in a new motion filed Wednesday. 

The defense for the former North Charleston officer accused of shooting and killing an unarmed man at a traffic stop in April 2015 is asking the state to provide items including a copy of another officer's in-car video and audio, the forensic report on Walter Scott's cell phone and the maintenance performed on Slager's taser.

Attorney Andy Savage is also asking for notes and video of interviews with Slager, family members, law enforcement officers and witnesses including Feidin Santana, who officials say captured video showing Slager shoot Walter Scott.

Also requested are reports on any analysis of Slager's clothing and documents pertaining to the search of Scott's car, including any reference to a white piece of paper with a "brownish/off-white substance" reported to have been found inside it.
