Oklahoma juror explains ex-cop’s manslaughter conviction

FILE – In this Friday, June 30, 2017 file photo, ex-Tulsa police officer Shannon Kepler, center, arrives at court with his legal team in his trial in Tulsa, Okla. A self-defense claim by Kepler who fatally shot his daughter’s black boyfriend cast enough doubt for jurors to convict him on the lesser charge of manslaughter over first-degree murder, the jury forewoman said. Jurors convicted Kepler on Oct. 18, 2017, in his fourth trial for killing of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake in August 2014. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki File)
