November sentencing set for ex-NOPD officer who burned body after Katrina

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A former NOPD officer, convicted of burning the body of a man killed by a fellow officer, will learn whether his 17-year sentence will get reduced on November 12.
Gregory McRae's re-sentencing date was set on Tuesday. 
He must be re-sentenced because, in July, a federal appeals court tossed out one of the charges on which he was convicted. Two convictions were upheld.
McRae burned a car containing the body of 31-year-old Henry Glover in the days after Hurricane Katrina. 
Officer David Warren admitted to shooting and killing Glover, but maintains the shooting was in self-defense. He was acquitted on federal civil rights charges.
