Ex-officer Kim Potter could testify today at her manslaughter trial in the killing of Daunte Wright

(CNN)Former police officer Kim Potter, who’s said she mistook her firearm for her Taser when she fatally shot Daunte Wright during a traffic stop this year near Minneapolis, could take the stand Friday in her trial over the 20-year-old Black man’s killing.

“Yes, your honor, I’ll testify,” Potter told Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu on Thursday.
Testimony from Potter, 49, could be the centerpiece of her defense against first- and second-degree manslaughter charges in the incident, which set off days of unrest in the city of Brooklyn Center after a summer of coast-to-coast protests over how police treat people of color.
