Trial for Officer Charged With Manslaughter in Death of Rekia Boyd Begins

Rekia Boyd

Rekia Boyd's life was cut short by the "reckless" actions of an off-duty Chicago Police detective, prosecutors said Thursday at the officer's trial. "She didn't see it coming; she didn't have a chance," Assistant State's Attorney Ramon Moore told a packed courtroom as opening statements in Dante Servin's trial began.

Servin, 46, faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, reckless discharge of a firearm and reckless conduct in the 2012 shooting that killed 22-year-old Boyd and wounded another man. The trial started Thursday afternoon.
