CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The federal trial for Michael Slager is expected to be held in the spring, according to sources close to the case.
In May, a grand jury indicted Slager on federal charges for the shooting death of Walter Scott during a traffic stop last year.
His federal charges include civil rights charges, use of a weapon during a violent crime and obstruction of justice.
Sources told Live 5 News there is no specific federal trial date set for the former North Charleston police officer.
A pre-trial conference was held with the federal judge earlier on Tuesday.
Last week Slager's state murder trial ended with a hung jury.
The jury heard from 55 witnesses over a five week period and deliberated for a record of more than 24 hours over four days.
In the end, the panel couldn't come to a unanimous verdict.
Prosecutor Scarlett Wilson says she will re-try the case on the state level, but a date has yet to be determined.
