Van Dyke pleads not guilty Tuesday

A white Chicago police officer charged with murder in the shooting of black teenager Laquan McDonald has pleaded not guilty. Jason Van Dyke appeared in court Tuesday and his lawyer entered the plea for him. McDonald’s great-uncle says having gavel-to-gavel televised coverage of the officer’s trial would be “in the best interest of fairness and justice.” Another hearing is planned in late January.
