Warren Limmer said Wednesday that he still opposes the federal law but will let the measure come to a vote in a committee he chairs.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors argue the case against a Minnesota police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile during a July traffic stop should proceed, saying several facts must be resolved by a jury. Prosecutors made the arguments in a document filed Wednesday. It was in response to a defense request to dismiss the case against St. Anthony police Officer Jeronimo Yanez. A hearing on that request is scheduled for Feb. 15. Yanez faces manslaughter and other charges.
