COP KILLED: Trott Cleared To Stand Trial
The trial of man accused of killing a Rockwell City police officer will go forward.
In September, 2013 Officer Jaime Buenting was shot and killed while trying to serve an arrest warrant for domestic abuse.
The shooting then led to a five-hour standoff with police.
The accused gunman, 32-year-old Corey Trott eventually surrendered.
Trott appeared in Webster County Court Friday morning. Following a review of his mental evaluation, Trott was ruled competent to stand trial.
Because of pretrial publicity, Trott’s trial will take place in Clarion in September.
This week Jaime Buenting’s name was among the more than 200-police officers added to the National Peace Officer Memorial in Washington DC.
Buenting’s family was at the ceremony.
