Attorneys for slain black Missouri teen to speak on Thursday

By Scott Malone

FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – Lawyers for the unarmed black teen shot dead by a Missouri police officer on Thursday planned to discuss a private autopsy the teen’s family commissioned, as the pathologist who performed it testifies before a grand jury.

A grand jury, meeting in private under standard U.S. procedures, was expected to reach a decision this month on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the white officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson in August.
