Condiment controversy: Does ketchup belong on a hot dog?
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A judge, showing signs of frustration, agreed to delay the murder trial of former Milwaukee Police Officer Michael Mattioli.
Mattioli was scheduled to go on trial on May 2 for reckless homicide for the chokehold death of Joel Acevedo. That happened two years ago this month.
At a hearing Friday, April 22, Mattioli's attorney, Craig Powell, told circuit judge Glenn Yamahiro that he has witnesses who won't be available for several months.
That led to this exchange:
"I'm just trying to minimize the delay of this trial."
"As are we all, I think, nobody like this, judge."
"Well when somebody comes in and says 'well my first availability is in five or six months,' I have questions about that."
"Well I can tell you, I can look you in the eye and tell you, that's an honest response."
Mattioli's trial has been pushed back to Nov. 14.
The next court date for Mattioli is a pre-trial hearing Sept. 29.
