A jury has found a former Culpeper police officer guilty of killing an unarmed woman.
Daniel Harmon-Wright was convicted of voluntary manslaughter on Tuesday.
He was accused in the shooting death of 54-year-old Patricia Ann Cook.
Harmon-Wright said he shot Cook after she trapped his arm in the window of her vehicle and dragged him.
A prosecutor called the fatal shooting "excessive" and unnecessary.
