VIDEO: Trial Begins Today For Officers Accused In Laquan's Death

A trial is set to begin Tuesday for three current and former Chicago police officers accused of trying to cover up what happened the night another officer fatally shot Laquan McDonald.

Those three officers face state charges after prosecutors said they tried to prevent investigators from learning the truth about Laquan McDonald's death.

Retired officers David March and Joseph Walsh and Thomas Gaffney, who is suspended without pay, will go on bench trial. The men are accused of coordinating their stories and making false police reports.
