UTICA, N.Y. -- The case against the Albany police officer charged with soliciting a prostitute in a 'justifiable homicide' incident has been adjourned one day.
According to Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara, the attorney for Officer Christofer Kitto requested a delay due to the potential snow storm.
There was no opposition to his attorney’s request, and court granted the adjournment.
Police are calling Kitto's case a justifable homicide. They say he killed 35-year-old Shatelle Hooks., of Syracuse, earlier this month.
Hooks suffered from several gunshot wounds, and died from his injuries.
Police say Hooks pulled a knife on Kitto and tried to rob him, before he was shot and killed.
Kitto will appear back in city court on Wednesday, January 30 to face a prostitution charge.
