A New Jersey police officer accused of killing a motorist following a road rage dispute on Route 3 will stand trial in March. 

A judge in Anne Arundel Circuit Court said the trial for Joseph Lamont Walker will be scheduled for March 10 and is expected to last eight days.

Walker, a Mt. Holly, NJ resident, is accused of fatally shooting Joseph Dale Harvey on June 8 after the two men had a traffic dispute heading north on Route 3 in Millersville. He was originally charged with second-degree murder but a grand jury later upped the charged to premeditated murder. 

Walker has claimed he acted in self defense.

I'm glad this guy is being prosecuted. Two Questions: 1. Wasn't there a witness in this case . . . a passenger riding in the car with the driver that was killed? 2. Is the accused shooter in jail in at the moment, or was he granted bail since he's a police officer?

Jerry - yes, there were witnesses, including a passenger in the car of the man killed. He is free on bond but suspended from his job without pay.
