Former police officer wants indictment tossed

- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The attorney for a former Juneau police lieutenant charged with attempted murder says the case should be dismissed. A motion filed by defense attorney Julie Willoughby says the grand jury that indicted 45-year-old Troy Wilson was not properly instructed. She says grand jurors were not informed of the standard of proof that must be reached for an indictment. The Juneau Empire reports the grand jury in April indicted Wilson on six counts of attempted murder plus felony assault and weapons misconduct. Investigators say Wilson barricaded himself in his home April 7 and fired 75 to 100 shots at responding officers before surrendering. Willoughby says Wilson was drunk and suicidal during the incident. She says he had no intention of murdering six responding officers. His trial is scheduled for January.
