A former Brooklyn Center police officer charged with second-degree manslaughter in Daunte Wright's death is scheduled to appear in court via videoconference.

Former officer Kim Potter has an omnibus hearing, also known as a pretrial hearing, Monday afternoon in Hennepin County.

The hearing is to go over evidence and determine if there is probable cause for a case to proceed.

Wright was a 20-year-old Black motorist who was killed April 11 after a traffic stop.
