CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The fiancee of an unarmed man shot and killed by a Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer broke her silence Wednesday night. Caché Heidel says she hopes Jonathan Ferrell’s death will save lives. He was shot ten times, when officers responded to an attempted break-in call on Reedy Creek Road last month.
Heidel said Ferell should be remembered as a sweet man and his death should shed light on police brutality. Officers said Ferrell charged at them and wouldn’t stop. Ferrell’s attorney is asking for the police dash video to be made public. Officer Kerrick’s next court hearing is in December.
