Albany - Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges will assist in the investigation of a Columbus shooting case.
A Muscogee County deputy shot and killed drug suspect Kenneth Walker. It was later determined Walker didn't have drugs on him.
Hodges will help investigate whether a crime was committed. He says, "It is an exciting case to work on, however, it's also one that will be done in addition to every thing that's going on here in Dougherty County, including trial term which just started today. It will be a challenge, but I look forward with dealing with it."
The Chattahoochee Circuit District Attorney recused himself from the case.
