A Tulsa police officer charged with manslaughter will be back in court on Feb. 1 for formal arraignment.

A judge set the new arraignment date after Betty Shelby’s attorney asked for more time to file motions. Assistant D.A. Kevin Gray says such a request isn’t unusual. After Shelby’s attorneys file motions in January, Gray has two weeks to respond, then the arraignment will be held.

Shelby’s attorneys had no comment after Thursday’s court appearance. She is charged in the shooting death of Terence Crutcher in September. A trial date is expected to be set at the Feb. 1 arraignment.
