COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former Columbus K-9 officer has been indicted on murder charges in the death of a 20-year-old Black man who was lying on his bed when he was shot by police trying to serve a warrant. Former officer Ricky Anderson was charged Friday in the August 2022 death of Donovan Lewis. A lawyer for the victim’s family says that Anderson racked up more than 60 complaints of excessive force during his 30-year career. Mark C. Collins is Anderson’s lawyer. Collins says the grand jury is controlled by a special prosecutor and does not have the full picture of the facts.
