UTICA,N.Y. -- The case involving an Albany police officer who shot and killed someone in Utica will take a little more time before heading to grand jury.
Christofer Kitto was charged with patronizing a prostitute, but not murder, for what happened January 7 at a home on Lincoln Avenue.
Utica police called it justifiable homicide because a knife was pulled on Kitto. That knife is what is holding up the case.
The Oneida County district attorney says it was tested at the state police crime lab, and it shows multiple people touched the knife.
It was sent this week, to a different lab that can look at multiple DNA.
The DA says Kitto's DNA should not be on the knife if he's telling the truth, and that it is important information to have before the case goes to grand jury, likely sometime in April.
