Troy Wilson, a former police officer accused of firing on his former colleagues, is scheduled to change his plea in the case.
A jury trial in the case had been scheduled for April 15th, but that will likely be vacated or taken off the calendar after April 3rd’s change of plea hearing in Juneau Superior Court.
Wilson, a former lieutenant with the Juneau Police Department, was arrested in April 2012 after an alleged stand-off with officers at his home on Black Wolf Way. He allegedly fired 75-rounds at his former colleagues. No one was reported hurt.
Wilson faces six counts of attempted murder, six counts of weapons misconduct, six counts of assault, two counts of criminal mischief, and two counts of misdemeanor weapons misconduct.
He remains held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center pending posting of $1,000,000 bail.
