A Minnesota judge says there is enough probable cause for a trial to proceed against Kim Potter, who faces second-degree manslaughter for shooting Wright during a traffic stop in April.
Kim Potter has been charged with second-degree manslaughter. Wright's family has expressed skepticism about the police explanation that Potter mistook her gun for her Taser.
Police officials previously said Kim Potter mistook her handgun for her Taser when she shot the 20-year-old on Sunday. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
The resignations of Kim Potter, who fired her gun at Wright, and Chief Tim Gannon come after the city council passed a resolution calling for them to be relieved of duty.
