Police chief to be questioned about fatal shooting

The family of Jesse Turnbow is suing the police department, claiming his civil rights were violated by officers using excessive force when he was shot to death in December of 2006.

According to the Deseret News, lawyers for Turnbow's family requested to interview Greiner for the suit. They wanted to ask about the history of the officers involved in the shooting, but a magistrate ruled they did not have that right.

Yesterday U.S. Judge Tena Campbell overturned that ruling.
