UTICA, N.Y. -- The Albany police officer charged with patronizing a prostitute after a justifiable homicide incident on Lincoln Avenue in Utica last month, was in Utica City Court Wednesday for about 90 seconds.

It took Christofer Kitto's attorney less than two minutes to plead 'not guilty' on his client's behalf.

Utica police say Kitto shot and killed Shatelle Hooks, of Syracuse, after hooks pulled a knife on him and tried to rob him.

No charges, regarding the death, which police are calling justifiable homicide.

Kitto is due back in court March 29
