"Final Juror Selected For Koistinen Trial"

Final Juror Selected For Koistinen Trial -

Prosecutors and the lawyer defending former Windsor Locks Connecticut police Officer Michael Koistinen on Wednesday selected the final juror for the panel that will hear the state's case against Koistinen.
The trial is scheduled to begin June 19. Pretrial motions are scheduled for June 13. Defense attorney Raymond M. Hassett has filed motions to exclude evidence about Koistinen's alleged consumption of alcohol, his father's involvement in the case and statements made by police officers.
The state wants to have jurors visit the scene of the crash that killed Henry Dang and wants them to view a "speed demonstration."
Koistinen was fired from the police department after his arrest in the death of Dang, 15, who was riding his bicycle home from a friend's house around midnight on Oct. 29, 2010. The crash occurred on Spring Street in Windsor Locks.
Koistinen is charged with first-degree manslaughter, misconduct with a motor vehicle and tampering with evidence.
