Man who killed former Rider Joe McKnight to get new trial

The man who killed former Saskatchewan Roughrider Joe McKnight has been granted a new trial.

A court of appeal vacated the Louisiana man’s 30-year-sentence and manslaughter conviction after it was delivered by a split jury.

Ronald Gasser was found guilty but by a vote of 10-2.

Gasser fatally shot McKnight during a road rage incident in a New Orleans suburb in 2016.
