MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A divided Minnesota Court of Appeals on Monday upheld a former Minneapolis police officer’s murder conviction in the 2017 shooting death of an unarmed Australian woman who had dialed 911. Mohamed Noor is serving 12 1/2 years in the death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, whom he shot once in the stomach when she approached his patrol car in the alley behind her home. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Noor challenged his third-degree murder conviction. The appeals court ruled 2-1 to uphold the conviction, with one judge saying he would have reversed Noor’s murder conviction and sent his case for sentencing on the lesser second-degree manslaughter charge.

England international Heaton sustained a knee injury in Villa’s 2-1 victory at Burnley on New Year’s Day. Reina, 37, watched Villa’s 6-1 home defeat against Manchester City on Saturday from the stands. The Spaniard could make his debut away at Brighton this weekend. Speaking to the club’s website, Reina said: “It is a great dressing room, and I have been told they are great lads.Advertisement “Now we need a mentality to be strong and to be ready for a good battle. We need to play with discipline and remain determined. These kinds of things need to be our basics.” Head coach Dean Smith added: “We’ve managed to secure a player in Pepe who has a wealth of Premier League experience. “At the start of the summer we were looking for an experienced goalkeeper and brought in Tom Heaton. “Unfortunately, his injury has ruled him out for the rest of the season but Pepe fits our criteria not just because of his experience but also because of his leadership qualities.” Reina spent nearly a decade at Anfield before moving to Bayern Munich in 2014. He then joined Napoli after just one season in Germany. read also: Grealish ready to quit Aston Villa after Man City bashing A move to AC Milan followed but Reina has featured just once for the Serie A club this term.
