Cop to contest murder charges
THE cop charged with the murder of Kumanjayi Walker will plead not guilty says Northern Territory Police Association president Paul McCue.
Officer Zachary Rolfe, 28, was charged overnight.
Mr Walker, 19, was killed on Saturday. His death is being treated as a death in custody. Rolfe was bailed and has been suspended on full pay.
Mr McCue said the association would support the man and his family. Rolfe will appear in court at Alice Springs on December 19.
