TULSA -- Officer Betty Shelby is back in court for the first time since her interview with 60 minutes.  

Wednesday morning, the state asked Shelby’s attorney to turn over any raw video or recordings from her interview with 60 Minutes.

The defense says they didn’t record the interview with 60 Minutes and were denied raw footage from CBS.

The defense also recently filed a motion that would block the state from using the audio recordings of the exchange between the helicopter pilot and an officer calling Terence Crutcher a “bad dude.”

The judge overruled the motion, but is considering the defense’s request for limited instruction.

The judge has also ordered the defense to have the replica video they’re using in the trial to be submitted on April 19. The state was also ordered to have a witness list by April 19.

Officer Shelby is charged with first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of Terence Crutcher in September of 2016.

Another hearing is scheduled in the case for April 21 with the trial set for May 8.
