NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A former New Orleans police officer convicted for burning the body of a man shot to death by another officer after Hurricane Katrina will learn in November whether he will get a reduction in his 17-year sentence.

Gregory McRae must be re-sentenced because one of the charges on which he was convicted was tossed out in July by a federal appeals court. Two convictions were upheld.

A Nov. 12 sentencing date was set on Tuesday.

McRae burned a car containing the body of Henry Glover. Glover had been shot by Officer David Warren as police guarded a strip mall four days after Katrina flooded New Orleans in 2005.

Warren eventually was acquitted after testifying that he thought he saw a gun in Glover's hand as Glover ran toward the building.
