Ex-Officer Charged in Teen's Death to Face Grand Jury

A Dallas County grand jury Wednesday is expected to hear an aggravated assault case against the fired Balch Springs officer who shot and killed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards.

Roy Oliver was arrested on a murder charge in Jordan's April death. The aggravated assault case is unrelated and stems from a traffic accident two weeks before Jordan was killed.

Monique Arredondo previously told The Dallas Morning News that Oliver pointed a gun at her after she rear-ended his truck along South Cockrell Hill Road in Dallas in April. Oliver was off duty and not in uniform at the time.
