Garrett Rolfe, the Atlanta police officer fired after the killing of Rayshard Brooks last week, now faces 11 charges including felony murder, which could potentially lead to the death penalty, a Georgia district attorney announced Wednesday. A second officer, Devin Brosnan, is facing three charges, including aggravated assault, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr. said at a news conference. During the announcement, Howard said that Brosnan had agreed to give a statement against Rolfe and become a “state’s witness” — but Brosnan’s attorneys later disputed that claim.
