Atlanta-  The Georgia Supreme Court hears arguments on a manslaughter case involving two former Newton Police Officers. 

Newton Police Officers David Zigan and James Freeman asked that only a judge hear their involuntary manslaughter case. The two are charged in connection with the shooting death of Hershel Bullard. South Georgia Judicial Circuit District Attorney Joe Mulholland wants a jury trial. The Superior Court agreed with Mulholland, but the defendants appealed. Arguments were heard Tuesday. 

"That's the thing with the supreme court, you never know if it's going to take three months or six months. I'd like to get it as soon as possible so we can have some closure for the family in this case and everybody involved," said Joe Mulholland, District Attorney. 

An Atlanta Prosecutor was brought in to help argue Mulholland's case.  The officers got into a gunfight with Hershel Bullard in October of 2005 after Bullard fired shots into the air to scare someone from his yard.
